Picnic Theatre Company’s The Importance of Being Earnest at Dumbarton House to Benefit Courage for Kids

On June 13, 14 and 15, 2018, please join Courage for Kids and Picnic Theatre Company at Dumbarton House in Georgetown for Oscar Wilde’s wildly entertaining 1895 comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People”! This classic social satire features two carefree bachelors, each with a carefully hidden double life that quickly unravels.  Silliness ensues with jealous fiancées, whimsical ingénues, scheming society matrons, and the most famous handbag in theatre history.
