The Importance of Being Earnest auditions

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, better known as The Importance of Being Earnest, a farcical comedy by Oscar Wilde, is Evolution Theatre Company's next big production.

Auditions for the play in which two young gentlemen create alter egos named Earnest to escape burdensome social obligations will be held at the Disraeli Street theatre on Saturday, February 22, at 11am.

In Wilde's satirical society play the bachelors trying to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Earnest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure.

There are roles for men and women ages 16 - 70. Rehearsals start March 31. Performances June 4-20. To reserve an audition spot, complete the form on Evolution's Facebook page, https://tinyurl.com/udpr5ll
