Hudson Classical Theater Company celebrates their 20th season with three exciting shows: The Importance of Being Earnest, The School for Scandal and Margaret: Shakespeare's Warrior Queen.

This is Oscar Wilde’s most popular and enduring comedy about two English gentlemen who discover their given names aren’t enough for their love interests, making them both vie for the name of “Earnest.” In this adaptation, the coveted role of Lady Bracknell is played by actor R. Scott Williams.

Performances occur behind The Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument on the North Patio (W. 89th St. & Riverside Drive).
