 St Agnes Theatre Players 

The Importance Of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Described by Wilde himself as a ‘’delicate bubble of fancy’, on the surface The Importance of Being Earnest is a rollicking, intellectual farce, peppered with witty dialogue, preposterous situations, and outsized characters.

But it is the rich subtext of parody that skewers the mores of Victorian society and the motifs of marriage, social constraints, and hypocrisy that have given this play its popular longevity for more than a hundred years after its opening.  

Two young gentlemen have taken to bending the truth in order to put some excitement into their lives. Jack Worthing has invented a brother, Ernest, whom he uses as an excuse to leave his dull life behind to visit Gwendolyn. Moncrieff.

Her cousin, Algernon, decides to take the name Ernest when visiting Jack’s young and beautiful ward, Cecily. Things start to go awry when they end up together in the country, their deceptions discovered and pandemonium breaks loose!

Only an elderly nursemaid and an old, discarded handbag can save the day!
