Scena’s gender-bending production of Earnest is back—reset in the decadent, roaring 20s and with a sexy, surprising twist. Jack and Algy have it all, thanks to carefully crafted double-lives—until love and marriage enter the equation. Jack loves Gwendolyn. Algy loves Cecily. Yet, both women insist on marrying the elusive and mysterious “Earnest”. When true identities are revealed, will all live happily ever after? Featuring: Nanna Ingvarsson (2X Helen Hayes Award Winner), Brian Hemmingsen, Danielle Davy, Bob Sheire, Graham Pilato, David Bryan Jackson, Ellie Nicoll, Amie Cazel, and Mary Suib.
