Sunshine Unlimited presents ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ by Oscar Wilde and directed by Carrie Ann Mallino.
Showing at Missoula’s Crystal Theatre March 14-16 & 21-23, 8pm Fridays & Saturdays, 2pm on Sundays.
A lighthearted, romantic comedy set in Victorian England, ‘Earnest’ follows the tale of two pairs of young lovers from fashionable London to the English countryside where a lifetime of little white lies leads to an explosion of mistaken identity and “true love” hinges on the great importance of the name Ernest. Throw in one overbearing mother, one nervous governess, a foolish Reverend and a servant so bored with the absurdity of the idle wealthy he finds solace in the bottom of more than a few bottles of wine and you have a show guaranteed to make you laugh and leave the theatre with a greater appreciation for just how far we’ve evolved in the 21st century when it comes to falling in love. Starring some of Missoula’s finest talent,’The Importance of Being Earnest’ is just the thing to help us welcome Spring back to Western Montana.
