There is nothing like seeing live theater on the Cape during the summer, and the perfect place to do it is The Cape Playhouse in Dennis! This June, the playhouse is putting on The Importance of Being Ernest - one of my favorite plays. Oscar Wilde’s wildly entertaining comedy sparkles with dazzling wordplay and hilariously unlikely situations. This “trivial comedy for serious people” features two carefree bachelors, Jack and Algernon, each with a carefully hidden double life. But when Algernon discovers that Jack has been posing as a man named Ernest to escape to the city, he promptly travels to Jack’s country estate to pose as the fictional figure himself! Silliness ensues with whimsical ingénues, jealous fiancées, indomitable dowagers, and the most famous handbag in theatre history.
The play runs June 12-22 and you can see more at The Cape Playhouse
