Audition for “The Importance of Being Earnest”

From Julia Berard ’17: BEDFORD-Jp-1-articleLarge-v2

Complete this sequence: Judy Dench, Maggie Smith, Geoffrey Rush
and…. YOU!

Stumped? It’s not a list of people who have IBS. It’s not a list of terrible names for a chihuahua. It’s not a list of people I’m planning to wescam.

It IS a list of people who have had the opportunity to play Lady Bracknell in “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde, the most homoerotic playwright of the 19th century. As it is now, all of the people in this list got cast in the role and had the time of their lives…are you going to break the chain???

For those of you unfamiliar with this play, “The Importance of Being Earnest” is largely considered Wilde’s best play. This farce satirizes upper-middle class British culture in the 19th century with a plethora of puns, insults, mistaken identities, and of course, bunburries.

Now, you might be asking: how could this production be even more stupendous and queer? GREAT QUESTION. By gender-bending it, of course.

Date: Sunday, January 31st and Monday, February 1st
Time: 3-5pm and 4:30-6:30pm
Place: Usdan Multipurpose Room
