Don’t Miss Oscar Wilde’s
“The Importance of Being Earnest”
Presented by Novato Theater Company
You have until November 21st to enjoy this totally delightful farcical comedy at NTC. Laugh a lot during this stellar production, and smile a lot long after the performance.
Director Mark Clark has aced bringing together the perfect cast for pure audience pleasure and complete attention to the hilarious/farcical give and take — beyond mere scripted lines. The setting is a country home in aristocratic England during the 1800s (and the repartee is decidedly English). The point is “escape” – from social responsibilities and over-indulgence in social obligations expected among the wealthy at that time.
The wonderful cast members include: Lorenzo Alviso (as Jack and Ernest); Thomas Peterson (as Algernon Moncrieff); Gwendolyn Phair (as Cecily Cardew); Kim Bromley (as Lady Bracknell); Julianne Bretan (as Hon. Gwendolen Fairfax); Shari Clover (as Miss Prism); Tim Clover (as Lane and Merriman); and Mark Shepard (as Rev. Canon Chasuble, D.D.)
