Oscar Wilde’s most popular and well-known play, “The Importance of Being Earnest” is a delightfully witty comedy mocking Victorian traditions and social customs, where manners and appearance are everything and style is more important than substance. First performed in 1895 at St. James’s Theater in London, this “trivial comedy for serious people” continues to entertain audiences over a century later with its brilliant wordplay and hilariously absurd plot in which two young aristocratic gentlemen use fictional identities to escape tiresome social obligations and pursue their romantic desires.

The Lord Stirling Theater Company’s production of “The Importance of Being Earnest” is directed by Lisa M. Black of Westfield. The cast includes: Ryan Fleming of South Brunswick as Jack Worthing (Ernest), Derek Egidio of Columbia as Algernon Moncrieff, Sarah DeVizio of Chester as Gwendolen Fairfax, Sharon McGuire of Westfield as Lady Bracknell, Allegra Mroz of Roxbury as Cecily Cardew, Cass Cochrane of Colonia as Miss Prism, David Kelley of Fanwood as The Reverend Canon Chasuble, and Jeff Forbes of Westfield as Lane/Merriman.
