The Importance Of Being Earnest

The Importance Of Being Earnest

Performing Arts

By Russell Florence, Jr.

Cedarville University delivers a delightfully sophisticated presentation of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, a charming and lighthearted romantic comedy that addresses class, hypocrisy and Victorian mores. Fluidly directed by Diane Conrad Merchant and featuring an attractive set and costume design by Donald N.C. Jones, Earnest is enjoyably and respectively led by Jordan T. Hickling and Josiah Ryan Smith as Algernon Moncrieff and John Worthing, tightly-wound, bickering buddies humorously willing to reshape their identity for the sake of love. Merchant’s appealing cast also includes Emily Lynn Bush, Amy Eiler, Grace Elizabeth Pilet, Matthew Glenn Scheerschmidt, Callan J. Yeates and the particularly dynamic and comical Stephanie Anderson as the notoriously blunt Lady Bracknell. Performances continue Thur. and Fri. at 8 p.m. and Sat. at 2 and 8 p.m. in the Stevens Student Center. Tickets are $8-$12. Call (937) 766-4491 or visit online at www.Cedarville.edu
