London,1965. The sounds. The colors. Skirts are getting shorter, hair is growing longer, and times are changing faster than ever. This romantic pop musical moves Wilde’s comic masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest to a Carnaby Street flat, where mod music and morality inspire young love, but outrage Lady Bracknell, the keeper of tradition’s flame. From the author of TheatreWorks' hits Emma, Daddy Long Legs, and Broadway's Jane Eyre.
