  American Heartland Theatre is delighted to bring Oscar Wilde's famous farce to Kansas City. The Importance of Being Earnest is a  glorious comedy of mistaken identities, which ridicules codes of propriety and etiquette. Dashing men about town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue fair ladies Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. Matters are complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on the sly activities-not to mention the disapproval of Gwendolen's mother, the formidable Lady Bracknell, played by Kansas City favorite Jim Korinke! It's a comic masterpiece about class and name dropping.

The Importance of Being Earnest is presented in three acts with two intermissions. Approximate running time is two hours.

"TERRIFIC ... CREATIVE ... HANDSOME"

"One of the best shows I've seen at AHT in 20-plus years"

- Robert Trussell, The Kansas City Star

 

"After I saw The Importance of Being Earnest, I was actually in pain from my continous smile. Who holds a permanently fixed grin for two hours? I rarely, if ever, do, and I went home with the soreness to prove it" Deborah Hirsch- The Pitch

 "Funny as hell and absolutely perfect" - New York Magazine
