Our Lady of Sorrows Upper Academy girls invite you to their play: Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest".

Join the Our Lady of Sorrows Academy Drama cast as they present Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest''. The play is a satire in which Wilde pokes fun at the lifestyles of the English upper class. The story centers around two young men who both invent a fictitious, but very useful, relative in order to escape some of their social obligations. The fun begins when they fall in love and their farces end up getting them into a bit of a scrape ... The play, with its colorful characters, such as the controlling and garrulous Aunt or the perpetually pessimistic butler, is sure to provide you with many a laugh, with no shortage of witty lines or nonsensical sayings. Wilde said it best: “It is a trivial comedy for serious people". The play will be held in the Performing Arts Center on June 3rd and 4th at 7:15pm. Admission is free.
