Background

Synopsis


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 and 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.
