Shakespeare in South Park producers Phyllis Tonne and Galen Wilson announce the staging of their 11th annual production, a play by Oscar Wilde. It will be performed outdoors in the South Park Green (Hickory at James) September 10, 11 and 12. The cast and the technical will be made up of mostly South Park neighbors. The performances are free, but the producers will seek funds through sponsorships and by “passing the hat.”

From Wikipedia:

The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James’s Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play’s major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways.

August 7: our 2nd PPD of 2021

Although PPDs are usually carry-ins, in deference to public health concerns, we’ll have the food catered. Rumor has it, it will be a tasty buffet that will please omnivores and vegetarians alike. There will still be beverages for all, including beer and wine. Bring a lawn chair if you like.
