Lowcountry infused

The Flowertown Players perform their rendition of Oscar Wilde’s classic play, The Importance of Being Earnest starting this weekend. Joseph Demerly, executive director at Theatre Charleston (also known as the League of Charleston Theatres), brings the quiet village of Hertfordshire to the 1920s Lowcountry. This contemporary interpretation provides timeless wit and flare to Wilde’s critique of Victorian customs. The Flowertown Players feature local actors such as Jacob Sunding (“Jack” Worthing) and Erik Brower (Algernon Moncrieff). Though reimagined with this new, Charlestonian twist, Wilde’s humour still shines through as he shows the strangeness of romantic love and the hilarity of our society throughout the ages.
