The Importance of Being Earnest

11–14 November 2009

The importance of being Earnest - To avoid family duties, Algernon Moncrieff, a bachelor-about-town, has invented Bunbury, a sick relative who frequently calls him away. His friend, Jack Worthing, has invented a wicked brother called Ernest to disguise his own misdemeanors. When Algernon poses as Ernest in order to meet the excessively pretty Cecily, confusion takes hold. And it’s not until the full significance of an ordinary black handbag is discovered that Jack is allowed to marry his beloved Gwendolen.

A trivial comedy for serious people.


A stellar cast, an outrageous set and more witty (in the true sense of the word) banter (in the most victorian meaning of the word) than you can shake a stick at.
