Audio Plays

Finished May 11
The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde and The Real Thing by Tom Stoppard performed by L.A. Theatre Works
I picked up this dual package of plays at a recent conference.
I went to a live performance of The Importance of Being Earnest when I was 14 (quite some time ago), but had forgotten most of the plot. I had never seen, heard, or read The Real Thing before.
The performances were very well done and very amusing and I enjoyed them both thoroughly.
As the introduction states, Oscar Wilde's humourous plays are a precursor to a variety of humour entertainment today, from sitcoms to Monty Python.  Stoppard's play is witty, with wry humour and shows raw emotion. A great way to enjoy theatre.
