“The Importance of Being Earnest” is a story of two gentlemen who create imaginary characters and end up finding the loves of their lives. Their stories eventually catch up with them, culminating in a startling revelation. The play explores themes of romance, class, and etiquette while satirizing the values of the Victorian age.
The student cast includes Tyler Meding of Seaford and Javontay Sturgis of Dagsboro in the male leads. Robbie Muller of Millsboro and Adara Ryan of Milford are the female leads. The production is codirected by Performing Arts Club President Candace Fortney of Dover, and club advisors Chala Breen and Gayla Parola.
