In "The Importance of Being Earnest" Oscar Wilde pits reality against pretense in order to expose the superficiality of Victorian Era Britain. The truths of this classic comedy still resonate in 2012.
- John Worthington, J. P, “Jack” (25 – 30): sincere, responsible and realistic
- Algernon Moncrieff (25 – 30) “man about town”, great expounder of platitudes
- Rev Canon Chasuble D.D. (45 60) agreeable and a bit dim
- Merriman* (35 -55) Jack’s butler, steady and a bit apathetic
- Lane* (35 – 55) Algernon’s man servant, “speaks” through tone and looks
- Lady Bracknell (50 or over) opinionated, authoritative, keen-eyed and immovable
- Gwendolyn Fairfax (18 – 23) young, impulsive girl, unafraid to challenge authority
- Cecily Cardew (18) flighty, romantic girl, not enamored of reality
- Miss Prism (45 – 60): Governess to Cecily, strict, devoted to the “old school”, transparent
*These are very small, but very important roles that require three dimensional portrayal. Time commitment is flexible.
