Interview: Mohammad Shehata about “The Importance of Being Earnest” at Aurora Theatre

Mohammad Shehata, in conversation with KPFA associate theater critic C.S. Soong.

Mohammad Shehata plays the role of Jack in Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest,” now at the Aurora Theatre in Berkeley through May 19. In Wilde’s comic jewel, the superficial preoccupations of Victorian society are skewered as an elaborate farce plays out among two friends, the imaginary personae they’ve created, and two women intent on only marrying men with the name “Ernest.”

The Aurora Theatre is located at 2081 Addison Street in Berkeley.
