Program Notes: 

Cecily and Gwendolyn know that the only really safe name for a suitable suitor is Earnest. But Algy and Jack, the two blundering bachelors who set out to woo them, don’t let a little detail like that stand in their way. The main thing standing in their way is the formidable Lady Bracknell, who is intent on ensuring everything is properly buttoned up. Alas, the game of Victorian-era courting goes hilariously awry in this beloved classic comedy of manners. 

 A “perfectly constructed confection.” — The Washington Post
