The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde’s comic masterpiece about the business of love and the bending of truth, will be brought to sparkling life by director Phil Miolin.

“It’s is an opportunity to play with a variety of styles of comedy and a diverse range of characters. While normally associated with his witty aphorisms and wordplay, Wilde goes further in Earnest, with elements of farce, moments of absurdism all wrapped up in a satire of the frivolities of the upper classes” says Miolin.

“The cast has relentlessly mined the script for any and every opportunity to unearth the comedic possibilities both within and outside Wilde’s text.”

So come and spend an evening in the company of Wilde’s witty social satire with plot twists, mistaken identities and double entendres galore. Grab a cucumber sandwich and discover for yourself the vital importance of being Earnest!
