  The Front Porch Players Fall Play                 
  "The Importance of Being Earnest"

four-act version of Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest,” 
directed by Keith Reed, this fall. 

Shows:   Fri. Oct 5th and 12th at 7 pm
                Sat. Oct 6th and 13th at 2 pm and 7 pm


John Worthing, a carefree young gentleman, is the inventor of a fictitious 
brother, “Ernest,” whose wicked ways afford John an excuse to leave his 
country home from time to time and journey to London, where he stays 
with his close friend and confidant, Algernon Moncrieff. Algernon has a 
cousin, Gwendolen Fairfax, with whom John is deeply in love. During his 
London sojourns, John, under the name Ernest, has won Gwendolen’s love, 
for she strongly desires to marry someone with the confidence-inspiring 
name of Ernest. But when he asks for Gwendolen’s hand from the 
formidable Lady Bracknell, John finds he must reveal a secret which may 
unravel his entire plan.  

Billed as "A Trivial Comedy for Serious People," this play, by Oscar Wilde was 
first performed on February 14, 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, is a 
farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ to 
escape burdensome social obligations.
