  • Cappies Review: Oakcrest Production of 'The Importance of Being Earnest'

    “The Importance of Being Earnest,” performed at Oakcrest School, combines witty banter and vivid expression into a feel-good piece of theater.

    The show, written by Oscar Wilde in 1895, follows Mr. John Worthing (Jill Collins), a foundling left in a suitcase when he was a baby, as he attempts to win the hand in marriage of Honorable Gwendolyn Fairfax (Mary Cate Diederich) by reinventing himself as a top tier aristocrat.

    He claims to be named Earnest, and a dear friend of Mr. Algernon Moncrieff (an exceptional performance by Grace Pluta). This is his only choice, as Gwendolyn would not marry a man with any other name. Algernon discovers, however, that John is living a double life in the country.
