THE WITTIEST PLAY IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
The Importance of Being Earnest, has been delighting audiences for well over a century. This marks the first production of the play ever to be performed at UCSB. Our version of Wilde’s beloved comedy – a heady cocktail of mistaken identity, young lovers, hilariously dated elders, high style and pithy social commentary, all re-imagined and set in the 1930’s – is sure to appeal to audiences of all ages.
