Tuesdays 6:30pm - 9:30pm (No Class July 2)

June 18 - July 30

"This suspense is terrible. I hope it will last."  Oscar Wilde

This class will engage you in the wit, craft and social commentary of one of the English language's most celebrated playwrights, Oscar Wilde, as we head into Antaeus' fall production of his masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest. We will explore the play's sly wit, biting satire and high comedy. The powerful combination of technical expertise and emotional truth brings Wilde to life and makes us understand why his plays have been performed for well more than a century. Open to actors of all ages.

Moderated by Kitty Swink, Antaeus Company Member
