Oscar Wilde’s much-loved tour-de-farce receives an uproarious Resident Company revival with this landmark lampoon of Victorian norms—a jovial joyride of double lives, double entendres, and labyrinthine twists and turns. Algernon’s cousin Gwendolen and her friend Cecily both fall for a man named Ernest (of whom Lady Bracknell—played by company member Bruce Randolph Nelson—disapproves), but whether wit or wisdom will prevail is anybody’s guess! Runs Dec. 4-Dec. 30.
