Oscar Wilde’s comedy of mistaken identities and deflated Victorian pomposity remains popular, well over 100 years after it was first performed.  No one is quite who they seem to be in this witty farce.

Becca directed The Drunken Sisters at Illinois Wesleyan, and was the Assistant Director for STC’s Willy Wonka, Jr. last year.  She recently appeared in OTM’sShakespeare Shorts and Camelot, and was Squeaky Fromme in STC’s Assassins.
