French Creek Theatre’s Play Club! Read aloud and discuss a different play each month. ANY AND ALL WELCOME!!! Wednesday, June 14 6:30PM-9:00PM Scripts and light refreshments provided. This month: The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde Oscar Wilde's immortal satire of Victorian social hypocrisy, the witty play is considered Wilde’s greatest dramatic achievement. The play tells the story of Jack Worthing, a fashionable young man who lives in the country with his ward, Cecily Cardew. He has invented a rakish brother named Ernest whose supposed exploits give Jack an excuse to travel to London periodically to rescue him. Jack is in love with Gwendolen Fairfax, the cousin of his friend Algernon Moncrieff. Gwendolen, who thinks Jack’s name is Ernest, returns his love, but her mother, Lady Bracknell, objects to their marriage because Jack is an orphan who was found in a handbag at Victoria Station. Jack discovers that Algernon has been impersonating Ernest in order to woo Cecily, who has always been in love with the imaginary rogue Ernest. Ultimately it is revealed that Jack is really Lady Bracknell’s nephew, that his real name is Ernest, and that Algernon is actually his brother. The play ends with both couples happily united.
