The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde will be performed Feb. 14 – 23 at the Florida Gulf Coast University Theatre Lab in Fort Myers.
Oscar Wilde’s timeless classic, which debuted in London in 1895, follows a young man bent on marrying the woman he loves. However, he must first acquire some parents, get rid of a brother, and withstand the scrutiny of his soon-to-be mother-in-law. As he seeks to carve out a future with his intended bride, must he let go of everything that has made him who he is? Social and gender roles are explored and exploded as this production of Wilde’s witty comedy grapples with what it truly means to be “Earnest.”
TheatreLab is the black box performance space for the productions of the FGCU Theatre Program. The theatre is located in the Arts Complex on the FGCU campus, seats up to 90.
