The Importance of Being Earnest is Oscar Wilde's classic, witty and laugh out loud comedy of mistaken identities, confusion and cucumber sandwiches. On the surface it's a light, fluffy jibe at the nonsensicalness of the rich and upper class. At a deeper level, it is also a profound plea for sincerity & caring in the face of adversity.
Imagining a thoroughly diverse and integrated English society, 2 British-African women play all characters and bring to life this 19th-century comedy of manners in an at once mocking and lovingly playful tone. Embracing wild wit, deft humour, role swapping and banter with the audience, they unfurl a riot of love, confusion and high jinks.
A perfect show for anyone ready for a good night out, looking for a bit of comedy and entertainment, hankering for a fresh take on a classic play or simply a fan of good theatre.
This includes adults of all ages, young adults and children from the age of 11 and above.
