Drama Association Presents "The Importance of Being Earnest"

Covenant College's Drama Association will present its production of Oscar Wilde's classic comedy The Importance of Being Earnest in Sanderson Hall auditorium on November 7, 8, and 13, 2008, at 8:00 pm and on November 15, 2008, at 2:30 pm.

The story revolves around John Worthing, a country gentleman who, when visiting London, pretends to be a fictitious (and mischievous) younger brother named Ernest. As "Ernest," he woos Gwendolen Fairfax, the cousin of his friend Algernon. But when Algernon discovers John's secret, he too pretends to be "Ernest" and travels to the countryside to woo John's ward Cecily Cardew. Both couples meet in the country at the Worthing estate, and soon they all discover the great importance of being earnest.

Covenant College senior Dani Mascow is directing the production for her Senior Integration Project. The cast includes Bryson Kerns, Asher Payne, Amy Sue Austin, Christina Hartwell, Wes Simmonds, Janel Corbett, Ashley Saturday, Adam Carter, and Jon Davis.
