THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST IN A PANDEMIC

A Stay-At-Home Play
by Don Zolidis
Based on the play by Oscar Wilde
Directed by Andrew Christopher Gaupp

Video On Demand Streaming
Available for viewing from April 23 – 25, 2021
Tickets – $5 + fees

When you get a notification that Ernest has entered your video call, but Ernest is your false identity… Who in the world is about to log on? You’re about to find out as a new medium ties an extra knot in the hilariously tangled web of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. Now Jack and Algernon must vie for the hands of their beloveds despite not only the strictures of polite society, but also the obstacles of social distancing. One’s false identities are especially difficult to manage when one must remember to change one’s display name on video chat, and fearsome Lady Bracknell’s dinner invitations are an even more tedious prospect if small talk must be shouted from six feet away. Experience the classic comedy in a whole new way in this playful adaptation perfect for remote performers.
