The Importance of Being Earnest

Warragul Theatre Company

The Importance of Being Earnest is a glittering comic jewel of the English theatre. Ridiculous situations, all arising out of diversions, evasions and mistruths, provide a backdrop for the wittiest of dialogue, with almost every line a quotable quip from the dazzling brilliance of the author. This was Oscar Wilde at the height of his powers. First staged in 1895, the play has seen innumerable productions, on stage and in film, and it remains one of the most delightful and funniest of theatre experiences however it is shared. Earnest delivers more than a few jabs at pomposity and surely, in such unprecedented times we can all use an inoculation of 'serious triviality'.
