An NEYT Alumni Production

A Trivial Play for Serious People
“It is exquisitely trivial, a delicate bubble of fancy.” So says playwright Oscar Wilde of his beloved play, The Importance of Being Earnest. The New England Youth Theater, for its first alumni production, will present this exquisite social satire. The play tells the story of Jack and Algernon, who both lead double lives, and the two women who fall in love them, each professing a bizarre weakness for men named Ernest. Of course expect a twist, which hinges on a black handbag and an unpublished three-volume novel. Former NEYT regulars Ben Stockman, Nathaniel Cox, Nick Bombicino, Jei Callahan, Noah Smith, and Carolyn Wesley star under the direction of Sam Perry. Veronica Barron, a classmate of Perry’s and Callahan’s at Boston University, also joins this alumni group of BUHS graduates. So come on down to our sparkling new theater complex and see a trivial play for serious people.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students.
