- October 15, 2014 The Importance of Being Earnest William Peace Theatre presents Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Amy White. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, The Importance of Being Earnest is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae to escape burdensome social obligations. The play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Its high farce, humor and witty dialog have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play. TICKETS: $5 students / $10 Alumni, Senior Citizens, Faculty & Staff / $15 Adults SEATING: General Admission Purchase individual tickets online here. Purchase season tickets online here. view Event

She holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Montana State University in Bozeman, MT., and resides in Cary, N.C. with her husband.
“I am thrilled to be working at such an outstanding university,” Day said. “William Peace prides itself on being a strong advocate for financial aid, and working with students to find an affordable means to get into the classroom. I could not be more proud to be a part of this institution and what it stands for. I look forward to helping the University foster new and innovative ways for our students to enjoy an affordable education.”
