The Importance of Being Earnest (Theater Production) @ the Farmstead Arts Center

June 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
NJ United States + Google Map
$15 – $20

Join us for the Lord Stirling Theater Company's production of Oscar Wilde's most well-known play. In mocking tradition, The Importance of Being Earnest continues to delight audiences by demonstrating that what seems important is not really important, and that a keen eye and sharp wit can cut to the chase of many situations. Fast, witty language keeps the story moving against the prim and proper backdrop of the English countryside in the late 1800s. This theatre classic is a gem to lighten your spirit and bring a smile to your face. The play will be hosted in the Farmstead's beautifully restored English Barn (ca. 1750 and ca. 1840). Make sure to dress for the weather! General admission tickets are $20. Student, senior, or Farmstead member tickets are $15. Please visit Farmstead's Eventbrite page (https://www.eventbrite.com/o/farmstead-arts-850333961) to order tickets in advance. Tickets available at the door - cash only. Show times: Friday, May 31st: 7:30pm Saturday, June 1st: 7:30pm Sunday, June 2nd: 4pm Friday, June 7th: 7:30pm Saturday, June 8th: 7:30pm Sunday, June 9th: 2pm
