Zoom Reading of “The Importance of Being Earnest”

 In News

The Public Domain Players will be presenting one of the most favorite plays in the public domain – Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” – on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. in a free Zoom reading.

Described by Oscar Wilde as “a trivial comedy for serious people” and hailed by the New York Times as an “endlessly funny comedy … swift, sardonic repartee (that) ripples through the ages,” it is no exaggeration to say that “Earnest” is one of the funniest comedies in the English language.

The cast is:
John Worthing, J.P. (“Jack”) – Nick Nappo
Algernon Moncrieff – Jason Summers
Rev. Canon Chasuble, D.D. – Ralph Bowers
Merriman, Butler – Derek Tarson
Lane, Manservant – Derek Tarson
Lady Bracknell – Polly Corman
Hon. Gwendolen Fairfax – Amy Frey
Cecily Cardew – Luanna Wriston
Miss Prism, Governess – Debbie Buchsbaum
Stage Directions read by Derek Tarson

The reading is open to all and completely free. Please sign in to Zoom and join the fun using the information below:
