Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

The Importance of Being Earnest

Jack Worthing and Lay Bracknell

“George Maguire does not camp it up as Lady Bracknell but plays the character straight. He is superb in the role and his delivery is perfect….Darren Bridgett is splendid as the despicably debonair Algernon Moncrieff….William Elsman acquits himself with reserve as John Worthing. Both originate marvelous chemistry with pitch perfect comic timing and crisp delivery of the playwright's words….Alexandra Matthew gives a delightful naïve performance as Cecily with some great Wilde's epigrams….Cat Thompson gives a knockout portrayal of the self-assured Gwendolyn….Joan Mankin as Miss Prism and Jack Powell as Reverend Chasuble give engaging performances….Mark Robinson's set is an excellent two-story piece with the library on the top floor….Patricia Polen has designed some elegant Victoria costumes for both male and female….Robert Currier has helmed a smoothly pace production….Billie Cox's sound design is excellent.”

– Richard Connema, Talkin’ Broadway

Jack Worthing from The Importance of Being Earnest



“The costumes and set dressings, as well as the speech patterns and physical gestures all properly evoke the era, but some modern touches accentuate the fun….The actors deliver the lines with a well tuned mix of a distinct, but not exaggerated British accent.”

– Albert Goodwyn, San Francisco Bay Times
