A Woman of No Important’s Run at Taproot is Extended to March 4.

Oscar Wilde, acclaimed playwright and poet, wrote A Woman of no Importance in 1892, as a satire of the Victorian upper class and as a social commentary on marriage and the roles of women. It was, however, the least successful of his plays, because of its lack of original subject matter and its occasionally unnecessary lengthiness. Yet there is value to find in all of Wilde’s plays, including a playfulness amongst social critique and themes that are still relevant to this day. With a stellar cast, stage, and music production, Karen Lund – producing artistic director at Taproot Theatre –attempts to bring about “a story that makes us both laugh and think”.

The Mark of Immediacy

Anything but Immediate

Mark, the evangelist, was one of 70 Disciples of Christ and the founder and later Bishop of the Church of Alexandria in Egypt. Twenty-five years after Jesus’ death in 30 AD, he wrote down, presumably in Greek, the oral stories and legends about His life, which we know today as the Gospel according to Mark. Since his Gospels were the first ones to be written down, they are considered the most direct, best-written, with a coherent plot and the most dramatic.
