Under the Lights is proud to present Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People. An exciting, wild comedy that takes you through false identities, marriage proposals, babies in handbags, and countless cucumber sandwiches, the play is a satire of the Victorian period, when intricate, unspoken codes of behavior governed everything from communication to sexuality. Despite the passage of time, the play’s witty dialogue and timeless satire make it a perennial favorite.
Directed by Cassie Lewis ’17, cast members include Anoush Baghdassarian '17, Evan Boyer '19, Julien Chien '17, Namrata Dev '19, Micaela Ferguson '17, Henry Minervini '19, Victor Panyarskiy '20, and Anthony Sidhom '17.
