As Yet Unnamed Theatre Company will present The Importance of Being Earnest, a tale of love and a fake brother, this weekend at the Kentucky Center for the Arts.

The Importance of Being Earnest will take place on Aug. 29, 30, Sept. 5, and 6 at 8 p.m. each night. A matinee is to happen on Sept. 7 at 2:30 p.m. All performances will go on in the Mex Theater at the Kentucky Center for the Arts, located at 501 W. Main Street in downtown Louisville. 

Tickets for each show are $16 per person. All tickets can be purchased at the Kentucky Center box office, the Kentucky Center website, or by calling Kentucky Center at 800-775-7777. 

Embrace the hilarity of love and lies in The Importance of Being Earnest, which features two love stories and one person named Ernest. That is, if Ernest actually existed. It's actually the name of an imaginary, wicked brother John has made up as a reason to leave his home many times. It's also the name he'll use to win the heart of Gwendolen, who believes that name to be one of certainty and assurance. 

Meanwhile, John's close friend Algernon has also taken the name Ernest after falling in love with Cecily, who finds the brother John described as mysterious and endearing.

Oscar Wilde created The Importance of Being Earnest, and the production is considered to be one of his best-known. Gary Tipton directed the show for As Yet Unnamed Theatre Company.
