The Heights Players unveiled their staging of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest this weekend, with a matinee today at 2pm.
The Heights Players website says: Each performance will boast the talents of many Heights Players newcomers, as well as several veterans. Christopher Duncan and Adrian O'Donnell will be appearing in the roles of Jack "Ernest" Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, while Justine Campbell-Elliott and Ariana Shore will portray their love interests, Hon. Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew, respectively. Patricia Lavin appears as Gwendolen's domineering mother, Lady Bracknell. Daniele Doctorow will be portraying Cecily's puritanical governess Miss Prism. John Downing returns to the Heights Players stage as the rector Rev. Canon Chasuble, D.D. Paul Pricer makes his heights Players debut as Mr. Gribsby, a tax solicitor from London, in a restored scene from the original play that was cut despite Oscar Wilde's protests. Completing this talented ensemble is veteran Bernard Feinerman as Merriman, and Max Wastler as Lane, Mr. Worthing's and Mr. Moncrieff's servants.
