Description

Following their five-star production of Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood in 2019 and powerful staging of Sophocles’ Antigone in 2018, this ‘strong and capable ensemble’ (EdinburghGuide.com) returns in 2022 with Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. Subtitled ‘a trivial comedy for serious people', Wilde’s play is a biting satire on manners, matrimony and misbehaviour in late-Victorian high society. None of the author’s trademark wit and sarcasm is lost in director Nic Lloyd’s adaptation, which leaves us in no doubt why The Importance of Being Earnest remains amongst our most popular and enduring comedies.
