The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Earnest is the greatest comedy by one of the greatest comic wits of the English language. Two charming young ladies are in love with Earnest. But Earnest doesn’t exist. See how two bachelors, a handbag, one imperious mother, and more than one mistaken identity lead to host of delightful comic complications.

Love Letters by A.R. Gurney

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Andrew and Melissa are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. As they age and as their separate lives wend their ways through marriages, affairs, careers, children, and loss, their bond remains. Through their years of letters, shared with the audience by two actors, we come to understand how much they really meant to each other over the years—physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.
