A Comedy by Oscar Wilde

A Comedy by Oscar Wilde

Director Mark Jefferies

Oscar Wilde at his best! The Importance of Being Earnest is subtitled ‘A Trivial Comedy for Serious People’ is the best summary of the play!

Jack Worthing, found as a baby in a handbag at Victoria Station and named after a railway ticket, is prepared to be re-christened to obtain the Christian name – Earnest – his beloved Gwendolen requires of a husband. He has to confront the stigma of being the illegitimate child of a servant, before fortune, and a benevolent dramatist, reveal his true and entirely respectable identify!
