The Importance of Being Earnest

By Brain Power in Field Trips & Activities

October 20th, 2021

Dr. Ana-Maria Jerca, Dr. Karine Rashkovsky, Brain Power students and families (…and even one BP alumni from Queen’s University!) attended a theatre-outing to enjoy Oscar Wilde’s classic play “The Importance of Being Earnest” at the Capitol Theatre in Port Hope, Ontario.

Students in Intermediate and Senior Language Arts have been studying Oscar Wilde at Brain Power. What a treat to enjoy this great masterpiece together with live theatre!

Post-show, we all congregated outdoors under the stars to deliberate the deeper takeaways from the play. We indulged in wonderful conversation that included, but was not limited to: Wildean wit, Wilde’s characters’ names and “authenticity,” and whether true virtue and wickedness appear in the play.

What a FANTASTIC evening!
