Quiz winner to take in Earnest

It’s a great way to relax before final exams. Leslie Hernandez, a first-year chemistry student, won yesterday’s DailyNews trivia contest and earned two tickets to see the University Players production of The Importance of Being Earnest.

Hernandez’ name was drawn from all respondents who correctly matched the play’s quotation to its speaker:

University Players mount Wilde comedy at Essex Hall Theatre

The University Players production of Oscar Wilde’s comic masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest premiered Thursday at Essex Hall Theatre.

The play, which relates the romantic entanglements of wits Algernon Moncrieff and Jack Worthing, continues through April 14.

A luncheon lecture with English professor emeritus Colin Atkinson will precede the Sunday, April 7, performance; a “talk back” session with director Leigh Rivenbark and members of the cast will follow it.
