CRESCENT BEACH – A production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest will be staged by Beach House Theatre next summer.
To date, the company has featured plays written by William Shakespeare on a temporary, outdoor stage at Crescent Beach each August.
"We still love Shakespeare, but in 2015 we’re going Wilde in earnest," the company declared in its latest newsletter.
"The Importance of Being Earnest is arguably one of the great comedies ever written. It is Oscar Wilde’s most famous and most successful play," which is described as "Wilde at his finest: dry, delightful, captivating and bubbly."
Next summer, the company will also stage the kid-friendly Munsch Upon a Time, based on stories by Robert Munsch.
