An Earnest Performance

Last weekend, Cushing’s drama department presented The Importance of Being Earnest on the Cowell Chapel stage. The play was directed by Julia Ohm, who was ably assisted by Michelle Schloss. Oscar Wilde’s play, first produced in 1895, is a classic farce with a plot full of mistaken identity and social snobbery. A hearty congratulations to the students who made up the cast and crew. Bravo!
