The classic comedy, “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde, continues its run weekends at Theatre 29 through February 8 with a matinee this Sunday. The play, directed by Butch Pelfrey, features Broadway-class period costuming by Kathryn Ferguson, and a delightfully imagined and intricate setting designed by Pelfrey with help from his wife, Jackie Pelfrey.
“The Importance of Being Earnest” tells the story of a country gentleman who assumes another identity when visiting the city. When his city friend assumes another identity to visit the country, farce and hilarity ensue. Love is lost and found, the laughs are many, and the final “reveal” at the end of the show is leaving audiences delighted. Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors and military, and $8 for students with ID and children under 12. The play is suitable for all age groups. Tickets can be reserved at www.theatre29.org or by calling the Theatre 29 Box Office at 760-361-4151.
