The Importance of Being Earnest

This summer, Guild Festival Theatre presents one of the world's all-time favourite comedies, The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde, at the gorgeous, open-air Greek Theatre in Guild Gardens. For a cast list and more details, please click here.

"We were in Ontario mainly to see shows at Stratford and Shaw - but happened across this production during our brief stay. It turned out to be our favorite evening of the entire trip. Guild Park is such a beautiful setting, the acting performances were stellar with fresh takes on the classic work, and your generous volunteers made us feel right at home." - Chris Stonnell, arts professional visiting from North Carolina

"A remarkably talented cast of performers. Shepherd and Cook...are particularly entertaining. Their repartee is fast and amusing...amazing comedic timing. Frappier shines as the stern and snotty Lady Bracknell. This show is thoroughly entertaining." - Maria Tzavaras in The Scarborough Mirror
