Chapter One Book Store and the Hamilton Players will host a reading of Oscar Wilde's play The Importance of Being Earnest. We will have a blind draw to assign parts. If reading aloud is not for you, come listen to Wilde's brilliance on the page.
The Importance of Being Earnest displays Oscar Wilde's theatrical genius at its brilliant best. Subtitled "A Trivial Comedy for Serious People," this hilarious attack on Victorian manners and morals turns a pompous world on its head, lets duplicity lead to happiness, and makes riposte the highest form of art.
