The Importance of Being Earnest
Coming November 6, 2020

Presented by the HCC Actors Guild, this hilarious Oscar Wilde classic introduces us to two charming bachelors, each living a double life aided by a fictional alter ego called “Ernest.” But they fall truly in love with a pair of proper young women, both of whom are quite partial to men named Ernest. What happens next? Wicked wit and dead-on social satire punctuate this comedy directed by Harford theater faculty member Brandon McCoy. Visit Harford’s Facebook @HarfordCC for the event link closer to the 6th.
