Known as Oscar Wilde’s most hilarious comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest centers around a pun on the name "Ernest." John Worthing is "Jack" in the country and "Ernest" in the city. He has met his true love, Gwendolyn, in the city, which he thinks will work out very well for she will only marry a man named Ernest. But what happens when Gwendolyn unexpectedly visits him in the country and finds out who he really is? As Oscar Wilde wrote, "The truth is rarely pure and never simple."

Wappingers Falls, NY
Performance Dates: November 2, 3, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 2007
Synopsis: A ghost play. Although the beginning of the play is set in 1920's England, the story and its characters relate to some 30 years earlier, the late Victorian/turn of the century period. The action alternates between the time-frames. Kipps, a middle-aged lawyer, engages a young actor to help him tell his spine-chilling tale of a dreadful curse and a mysterious woman in black. In challenging, tour-de-force roles, the two men bring multiple characters to life as Kipps attempts to exorcise his ghost.
Needed: One woman, two men. This play-within-a-play requires strong acting skills from the two male characters and, preferably, some command of English accents. The young woman must move with grace, like a dancer.
The Actor: Age range: 20's to 30's.Plays both himself, a confident professional actor, and Kipps as a young man beginning his career in a prestigious London firm. He must reveal distinct differences in both characters' personalities and take the audience on a journey through extremes of emotion and fear.
Kipps: Age range: 50's to 60's. Plays himself as an older man, and six other distinct characters. Older Kipps is a gentle man, well educated, not outgoing in any way. Affected all his life by his terrible experience, he struggles to tell this story (as himself, and during narration passages.) We must like him and feel for him: he is the sympathetic character. The other characters portrayed by Kipps are:
