The Importance of Bein' Earnest

By Oscar Wilde, adapted by Nancy Rich

Thursday-Saturday, February 8-10, 2024, The Fuquay Varina Arts Center

Thursday-Saturday, February 15-17, 2024, The Holly Springs Cultural Center

Two charming young ladies--sophisticated Gwendolyn and naive Cecily--are in love with Ernest Worthing. But there is no such person--Gwendolyn thinks Jack is Ernest, and Cecily thinks Algy is Ernest. In the midst of the confusion comes Lady Bracknell who doesn't like the idea of anybody loving anybody. Delightfully updated to take place in 1920's Charleston, The Importance of Bein' Earnest has been an audience favorite for its humor, and its revelation that social status does not negate one's value.

Angel Street

By Patrick Hamilton

Thursday-Saturday, May 9-11, 2024, The Holly Springs Cultural Center

Thursday-Saturday, May 16-18, 2024, The Fuquay Varina Arts Center

First produced under the title Gaslight, Angel Street tells the story of the Manninghams. The suavely handsome Mr. Manningham is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness that masks more sinister motives. One of the most brilliant, suspenseful stores in modern theatre.
