ETCETERA, Live Theatre Workshop's Late Night Series, Proudly Presents
The Importance Of Being Earnest
A Trivial Comedy for Serious People
By Oscar Wilde
ETCETERA's re-imagining of Oscar Wilde's final and most enduring play sets the action in 1980's Manhattan with an all-male (and one Cockney Lesbian) cast. Whenever Jack Worthing (Eric Anson) slips away to New York from his Connecticut estate he says he is going to see his (fictitious) wayward brother Ernest. Once there he keeps his privacy by calling himself Ernest - luckily so as his beloved Gavin (Chadwyk Collins) declares he could only love an Ernest. Gavin's cousin Algernon (Christopher Johnson) is the one person who knows Jack's secret and one day he travels down to the estate, announcing himself to Jack's attractive ward Cecil (Jody Mullen) as bad brother Ernest. Cecil is much taken with him and with his name, so on Jack's return home and Gavin's unexpected arrival it becomes clear there are both too many and too few Ernests earnestly courting the young boys.
Bill Epstein as Lady Bracknell, Eric Anson as John Worthing, Christopher Johnson as Algernon Moncrieff, Cliff Madison as Miss Prism, Danielle Dryer as Token Dyke, Chadwyk Collins as Gavin Fairfax, Jody Mullen as Cecil Cardew & Jay C. Cotner as Canon Chausable.
