“A Trivial Comedy for Serious People.’”  "Earnest" is a time-honored play about two young gents who have taken to bending the truth in order to put some excitement into their lives. Jack Worthing (Trey Varner) has invented a brother, Earnest, whom he uses as an excuse to leave his dull life behind to visit Gwendolyn Bracknell (Maci Clark). Algernon Montcrieff (ElijahFontanez) decides to take the name Earnest when visiting Worthing's young and beautiful ward, Cecily Cardew (Ally Suchy). Things start to go awry when they end up together in the country and their deceptions are discovered. Additional cast members include: Lady Bracknell (Taelyr Blehm),  Miss Prism (Abigail Koech),  Chasuble/Lane (Gage Brown), and Merriman (Shayla Gould). The play is under the direction of Erin Renard.
