Strauss presents 'The Importance of Being Earnest'

The Oscar Wilde farce 'The Importance of Being Earnest' tells the story of two young Londoners who are living a double life. The men create fictious identities to woo British ladies. The Victorian comedy follows four lovers who are trying to conform to the times and those who are trying to stop it.

Jason Barnette joins Cory Crowe on KEDM's Lagniappe to talk about the Strauss Theatre Center's production. The play runs March 7-17.
