"The Importance of Being Earnest"

Date: Oct 04 - Oct 20, 2024
1 of 1


Subtitled “a trivial comedy for serious people” and well-known as one of the greatest comedies ever written, The Importance of Being Earnest is a classic in the truest sense of the word.

Written in 1895 and set in “the present,” the story of Algernon, Jack, Gwendolen, and Cecily has become one of the best-loved “period comedies” in the world.

In Wilde’s story, we follow the twists and turns of the unlikely romances of two pairs of young aristocrats, with mistaken identities, alter-egos, and the preposterous notion that love can only happen with a young man named Ernest.

Biting social satire combines witty wordplay and outrageous characters to make The Importance of Being Earnest a delight from an earlier age for audiences of all ages.
