The Old Globe stages Oscar Wilde’s "The Importance of Being Earnest," directed by Maria Aitken.

This beloved comedy sparkles with dazzling wordplay and hilariously unlikely situations. Known as a "trivial comedy for serious people," the play features whimsical ingénues, jealous fiancées, indomitable dowagers, and the most famous handbag in theater history.

The Globe’s lavish production of this timeless classic offers the unmissable opportunity to see what the London Telegraph calls "the most perfect comedy in the English language."

The play runs Jan. 27 through March 4, 2018. For tickets and additional details call (619) 234-5623.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
