The Importance of Being Earnest

Earnest Button Image

by Oscar Wilde

Directed by Steven Pounders

When two young society men of Victorian England adopt the same name as their alter-ego, the result is comic mayhem for themselves, their two young ladies, and cast of ridiculous characters including Lady Bracknell, perhaps the most formidable and hilarious snob of the English stage. Brimming with wit and style, The Importance of Being Earnest is a comic masterpiece; Oscar Wilde's most popular play.
