Maury Place at Monument Co-Sponsor of "The Importance of Being Earnest"!
Maury Place at Monument is a proud co-sponsor with Pence Auto Group of the latest hit production of Richmond Triangle Players. Now playing at RTP is Oscar Wilde's classic comedy of manners, "The Importance of Being Earnest." Some of the publicity photography for the show was done right here in the parlors of Maury Place, and the show has received universal praise from audiences and theater critics alike! The wit of Oscar Wilde is as relevant in the 21st Century as it was when the play was written in the 19th Century. "The Importance of Being Earnest" illustrates how we all have a deep desire to be true to ourselves and to passionately love whom we choose to love despite the restrictions of social norms. The characters of "Earnest"--all expertly played by stellar Richmond actors--hilariously embody the tension between polite manners and the urge to self-reinvention. "Earnest" is jointly produced by Richmond Triangle Players, Henley Street Theatre, and Richmond Shakespeare. The show has been a sell-out, and is extended through October 26, 2013 at the Richmond Triangle Players Theatre at 1300 Altamont Avenue--just steps away from Maury Place at Monument. Tickets are $15 to $30. For further information, call 804-346-8113.
