Lamb Lays with Lion's The Importance of Being Earnest


about the show:

Lamb Lays with Lion will produce its grand premiere of the Theatre of Disruption in NYC. Viewed as a sequel to their performance of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," Lamb Lays with Lion's The Importance of Being Earnest vows to a be a completely new production that reimagines a traditional staging, but rife with disruptions.

The performance will challenge conventional stagings of Earnest, by intentionally limiting its budget to perform the improbable task of staging a classic work that resonates with its modern audience by using various methods of Disruption. These disruptions, for the audience, are meant to question the performance's integrity and strengths, while being tantalized by the level of safety for the performers and whether or not the cast is able to get the show to "go on" at all.
