7:30pm with a 2:00pm Saturday matinée.

London. 1895. And the market has no cucumber sandwiches … not even for ready money! When Jack (“Earnest”) travels from the country to visit his friend Algernon (“Earnest”) at his flat in the city, marriage plots and “bunburying” abound, subverting customs and Lady Bracknell’s authority in Oscar Wilde’s trivial comedy for serious people: The Importance of Being Earnest.

Directed by past STU Director of Drama and recent Order of Canada recipient Ilkay Silk, Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest is sure to warm your heart and make you laugh out loud.
