Greenville High School students have been hard at work since early September preparing their fall play. The production this year is “The Importance of Being Earnest”, which you can see Friday, November 19, and Saturday, November 20.

Director Austin Kastl told WGEL the play is a Victorian farce by Oscar Wilde, who is famous for making fun of Victorian manners and the aristocracy.

We also spoke with two of the cast members, Than Williams, who plays Jack, and Friedrich Peters, who plays Algy. Their characters each fall in love with different girls, but they’re both pretending to be the same person, which leads to many misadventures.
