EAST LANSING— The Michigan State University Department of Theatre continues its free, open to the public, Summer Circle Theatre season with The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, adapted and directed by Dan Smith. Performances run June 13 through 16.

When Jack and Algernon invent alter egos named “Ernest” hijinks ensue. This classic comedy of manners satirizes the Victorian era especially through one of the most famous characters in the theatrical lexicon– Lady Bracknell.

This production is suitable for all ages.

The Summer Circle stage is an outdoor performance venue located on MSU’s campus between the Kresge Art Building and the MSU Auditorium. Free parking is available across the street. In the event of rain, the performances will be moved into the Fairchild Theatre.
