The Rewards of Being Frank

by Alice Scovell

January 27 – February 18, 2023

Previews January 25 and 26

Oscar Wilde’s much-loved comic masterpiece “The Importance of Being Earnest” finally receives an uproarious sequel in this world premiere.  Shenanigans ensue when lovebirds Algy and Cecily and Ernest and Gwendolen are revisited 7 years after their nuptials.  As the young couples are on the search for a new schoolmaster to instruct their children, they must avoid the pitfalls of mistaken identity, monetary mischief, and a timeless struggle over cucumber sandwiches. Do not miss this exciting new tour-de-FARCE that will instruct you on the “The Rewards of Being Frank.” This rolling world premiere hits Cincinnati stages before transferring to its Off-Broadway run in partnership with New York Classical Theatre.
