The Friday Harbor Middle School Players take on witty dialogue, vintage costumes and farcical fun as they present Oscar Wilde’s classic play, "The Importance of Being Earnest" March 28-30 at San Juan Community Theatre. The play was first performed in London in 1895.
The play takes a satirical look at Victorian ways, the nature of marriage, the constraints of morality, hypocrisy vs. inventiveness, and essentially, the importance of not being "earnest."
"The writing is brilliant,” said director Jane Maxwell Campbell. "It's a sweet, light comedy that exposes young people to good literature."
