Theatre like you’ve never seen before! This summer, New York Classical Theatre will present Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest. Follow the cast throughout Pier 1 in this intimate, mobile performance where scenes will unfold in various locations.

Considered one of the great comedies in the English language, Wilde’s 1895 classic is a satire of social manners and obligations in Victorian England. In New York Classical’s production, the entire cast will swap roles (and genders) every other performance to explore the power dynamics in the script.
