Young love must win out despite the objections of the imperious Lady Bracknell. Revived numerous times on Broadway, The Importance of Being Earnest was also adapted into a 2002 film starring Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. Now this timeless classic can be enjoyed at Scottsdale's Desert Stages Theatre's Actor's Cafe.
