THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff are friends that are both leading double lives, going seamlessly from city life to country life, using their double identities to avoid unwelcome social engagements. Cecily Cardew and Gwendolen Fairfax have fallen in love with Earnest Worthing, who appears to be two people- both Jack and Algernon. Once the deception comes to light, it turns out that fiction was closer to fact! (Rated PG)
BOOK AND LYRICS BY LYNN AHRENS
MUSIC BY STEPHEN FLAHERTY
Based on "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo" by Michael Butterworth. First produced by Playwrights Horizons, Inc. Off-Broadway in 1988.
From the Tony Award winning writing team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Once On This Island, Ragtime, Seussical), LUCKY STIFF is an offbeat, murder mystery farce complete with mistaken identities, millions in diamonds, and a corpse on holiday in a wheelchair. Harry Witherspoon is an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take his embalmed Uncle Tony on vacation to Monte Carlo in order to inherit millions, but if he's not successful, the money goes to a dog charity or his uncle's gun-toting ex! This ensemble cast of zany characters will leave you dying of laughter. Rated PG
