THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
by Oscar Wilde
directed by Kate Berry
JUNE 28 – SEPT 8
A classic comedy of manners…
The most renowned of Oscar Wilde’s comedies tells the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of Gwendolyn and Cecily, two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure. This classic comedy of manners pokes fun at Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved characters to be found on the modern stage. Our production features Christy Brandt as Lady Bracknell and Annie Butler as Miss Prism.
