The Importance Of Being Earnest

Aug 2015

The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde, played from Wed 12 – Sat 15 Aug 2015.

This sensationally witty piece tells the story of love, confusion and double identity as Jack Worthing’s alter ego is stolen by his irreverent friend Algernon Moncrieff in their struggle to woo women and escape excessive boring social obligations.

Oscar Wilde’s classic piece is given a new spin, set against a backdrop of 1968 London, this delightful farce is perfect for a summer evening. A trivial comedy for serious people!
