"The Importance of Being Earnest"

Last night I got to photograph the dress rehearsal for the upcoming play of the Upper Merion Underground Players. That is to say the theater program for the Upper Merion Area High School. They are performing Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” at the high school (map) on November 15,16, and 17 at 7:30PM. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. This farcical comedy first graced the stage in London in February of 1895, at the height of Wilde’s career. This humorous rebuttal to the stuffy, formal Victorian age was well received at its time and has had several revivals through the past century. It’s a tale of love, snobbery, marriage and false identity that pokes fun at everyone. Including Earnest.
