Lyon Gets Ready to Laugh with The Importance of Being Earnest

From September 28 through September 30, Lyon’s Harlequin Theater will present The Importance of Being Earnest at 7:30 p.m. It will feature one additional showing on October 1 at 2 p.m. Admission will be $5 for adults and $3 for senior citizens and non-Lyon students.

One of the most famous comedies of all time, Oscar Wilde’s farce pokes fun at Victorian society with characters constantly constructing and reconstructing their identities. Dr. Fonzie Geary says the play “is a proven crowd pleaser and one of the most often produced plays in the English language. Oscar Wilde’s rapier-like wit and clever wordplay have been charming and amusing audiences for over a hundred years.”

The play will showcase these Lyon actors: 

Algernon Moncrieff……………………………………………Trey Smith
Jack Worthing……………………………………………………Travis Reynolds
Lane………………………………………………………………….Billy Goode
Lady Bracknell……………………………………………………Carson Matthews
Gwendolen Fairfax……………………………………………...Bethany Stubbs
Cecily Cardew……………………………………………………..Lindsi Edgar
Miss Prism………………………………………………………….Navy Griffin
