The Importance of Being Earnest:
A Trivial Comedy for Serious People
June 13, 14, 15 at Dumbarton House
On Wednesday Thursday and Friday June 13, 14, and 15, join Picnic Theatre Company at Dumbarton House in Georgetown for Oscar Wilde’s wildly entertaining 1895 comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People”!
This classic social satire features two carefree bachelors, each with a carefully hidden double life that quickly unravels. Silliness ensues with jealous fiancées, whimsical ingénues, scheming society matrons, and the most famous handbag in theatre history.
Bring a blanket for garden seating. Wine and refreshments available on-site. Rain or shine (if rain we’ll be in the Bellevue ballroom). Proceeds benefit Dumbarton Houseprograms and Courage for Kids, which provides backpacks with school supplies to at-risk D.C. kids.
6:00pm cocktails, 7:00pm one-hour performance.
