>>The Importance of Being Earnest
by Oscar Wilde
November 15 - 24 | Studio One Theatre
A Trivial Comedy for Serious People. While the setting is 1890s England, anyone who finds the appearance of Lindsay Lohan or the Khardashians on their evening news broadcast puzzling, frustrating or the end of civilization as we know it will enjoy this satire of Victorian society – where the trivial is important and the important is trivialized. www.fauevents.com | 800-564-9539
