The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

2nd - 6th Apr 2019

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: £14.00 Concessions: £11.50


Description

Who is the central figure in Wilde’s immortal comedy? Mr Worthing, who leads a double life as Ernest in town and Jack in the country? Or that she-dragon of London society, Lady Bracknell?

The swift, sardonic repartee of this Victorian masterpiece ripples to us across the ages in an endlessly funny exploration of courtship, hidden identities, and social posturing among deliciously superficial people.

That Wilde’s most famous and crowd-pleasing work has stood the test of time is due not only to its finely tuned understanding of manners, morals, and marriage; the tongue-in-cheek social anarchy that seethes between those polished witticisms rings as true today as it did in the 1890s.
