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.

This production will move to New York City in March 2023! See it in Cincinnati before it heads to the Big Apple!
