Something for everyone:
A comedy tonight!"
Directed by STC Associate Director Alan Paul, this hysterical Tony Award®-winning musical features a beloved score by Stephen Sondheim and an uproarious book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbert. This bawdy and wild production is a gift from the gods for anyone’s holiday season.
“In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing.”
Oscar Wilde’s most perfect of plays is a comedy of class, courtship, and avoiding burdensome social conventions. Director of many STC hits, Keith Baxter (An Ideal Husband, Mrs. Warren's Profession, The Imaginary Invalid) returns to direct this trivial comedy for serious people.
“It's a pity you didn't have a little more brandy. It might have made you more agreeable!”
Noël Coward’s fast-talking, manners-breaking comedy makes its STC debut to finish a stellar season. Maria Aitken (STC ‘s 2009 hit, As You Like It) directs this witty and irreverent play about the people we cannot live with or without.
