The Importance of Being Earnest
Abridged & Wilder than ever!
November 5-21, 2021
It's time! Time to come together and celebrate theatre again. Whether you were locked down or locked up, you know you want to sit again in a theatre, with family, friends, and lovers, to laugh and cry and feel again. Feel human again. So please join us.
And Arís has the perfect show to come back to after more than a year of streaming handmaids and avengers and French dysfunction!
Arís is returning to live theatre with a rocket-fuelled steampunk adaptation of The Importance of Being Earnest, like nothing you have seen before!
This unique take on Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy, adapted by Kathleen McManus – Arís co-founder and artistic associate – is sure to get the juices flowing and the steam rising.
More details soon, so watch this space!

ARÍS in the Time of COVID-19
In response to current events regarding cornoa virus and COVID-19, Arís has postponed production until the time is right. We are saddened by, but certain of, the need for this decision, and we are hopeful that the precautionary actions we are taking now will allow us to move forward as soon as possible. We are working to identify and secure alternative dates for this production, and we will keep you informed of the new timeframe when we have it.

One of our core ideals is community — the community of artists that form the core of our company, the community of actors, directors, designers, and theatrical technicians we have the joy and privilege of working with on our productions, the community created by our audience as they share our passion for the work we do, the Atlanta theatre community that we are proud to call home, and the wider community of this great city where we all live. Community drives us to always consider the impact of our actions on others, and the choices we make about how to conduct ourselves as members of each of these communities is consistently a determining factor.
So in light of the risks associated with large gatherings at this time, it was not a difficult decision to postpone our spring production of Fighting Words. We are, as are our sister theatrical companies, concerned for the health and safety of our artists and audiences in this time of great uncertainty. So, for now, take care of yourselves and your families, and look forward to the time where we can all come together again to share our stories. We’re sure there will be lots to tell!
