About the Event
A special thanks to Griffin Health, for generously sponsoring this free theater experience at Quarry Walk!
Perfect for summertime enjoyment, Valley Shakespeare Festival presents Oscar Wilde’s wildly entertaining comedy, complete with dazzling wordplay and hilariously unlikely situations.
Two carefree bachelors, Jack and Algernon, each with a carefully hidden double life. But when Algernon discovers that Jack has been posing as a man named
Earnest to escape to the city, he promptly travels to Jack’s country estate to pose as the fictional figure himself!
Silliness ensues with whimsical ingénues, jealous fiancées, indomitable dowagers, and the most famous handbag in theater history!
