A Classic Comedy Set in Modern Times.

Cranbrook Community Theatre is excited to present the second production of their 2022/2023 season, The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.The Importance of Being Earnest follows a young man named Jack who lives in the countryside and pretends to be Ernest while he is in the city. While Jack pretends to be Ernest, he falls in love with Gwendolen, who has stated she will only marry a man by the name of Ernest.After discovering Jack’s ruse, his friend Algernon from the city heads to the country pretending to be Jack’s unfortunate brother Ernest. Algernon then ends up engaged to Jack’s ward, Cecily, who coincidentally is also determined to marry a man by the name of Ernest. Hijinx, drama, and christenings ensue!“Wilde’s writings prove some things are timeless… like making fun of the rich!” said Director Nathaniel Leigh. “Directing this show has been one of the biggest undertakings of my life. Getting to do a show I fell in love with back in college has made it all even more amazing! Thank you CCT for bringing me on!”

(At 7:30 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinée on February 19th only.)
