The Vermont Theatre Company is pleased to present Earnest! A Trivial Comedy for Serious People. This version of Oscar Wilde’s wittiest play will be like no other version available, having been lovingly reimagined and modernized by director CC. While the text has been edited some for time and clarity, the material and language of this production of Earnest largely remains the same – but with a twist.
Performances will take place at the Hooker-Dunham Theater and Gallery in Brattleboro on April 14-16 and 21-23, 2023. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays are at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for students and seniors. For reservations call 802-689-6206 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We follow Algernon, the middle class black sheep in a family of successful entrepreneurs, on their lifelong quest to utilize their 23andMe results to cause chaos. Other zany characters include their Lady Augusta Bracknell, who owns a world renowned fashion company, her adopted child, who is a little too interested in the name of Algernon’s best friend, a love interest with an active AO3 fanfiction account, a tutor with a secret past who’s in a torrid love affair with the local priest, and a best friend who gets dragged kicking and screaming along on this Wilde Bunburying adventure.
The production stars Nicole Caron as Jack Worthing, Elliot Vigue as Algernon Moncrieff, Olivia McNeely as Gwendolen Fairfax, Eden Gorst as Cecily Cardew, Geof Dolman as Lady Augusta Bracknell, Aubrey Clowndinst as Professor Prism, Katy Peterson as Dr. Caroline Chasuble, and Patrick Caron as Moulten Merriman/Lane. The show is sponsored by Brattleboro Savings and Loan.
