The Importance of Being Earnest

28th September - 2nd October 2010

The last of Oscar Wilde’s plays, The Importance of Being Earnest, tells the hilarious adventure of the wealthy and eligible bachelors, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, and the outrageous deceptions they find themselves in over love. Jack has invented an imaginary brother, Earnest, who he uses as an excuse to escape from his dull country life and cavort in town. Algernon uses a similar technique. His imaginary friend, Bunbury, provides him a reason for taking adventures in the country. However, their deceptions inevitably cross paths resulting in a series of crises that threaten to spoil their romantic endeavours; Jack of his love for the ravishing Gwendolyn Fairfax, and Algernon of the beautiful and young Cecily Cardew.
