The Importance of Being Earnest

By Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde's best-loved comedy of manners

IMPORTANT NOTICE: On Tuesday 19th July, the performance of The Importance of Being Earnest in the Playhouse is cancelled. This is due to the Government advice relating to the Red Alert for extreme temperatures. People who had booked for this show are being contacted by Box Office this afternoon and will be offered the option of moving their booking to another performance later in the week, or to receive a credit, or refund in that order.

To mark 76 years since the Questors Student Group was founded, we bring you the most highy acclaimed of Oscar Wilde's classics, The Importance of Being Earnest.

Wilde's comic tale follows bachelors Algernon Moncrieff and Jack Worthing as they create alter egos to escape their tedious existence. In an attempt to win the hearts of two young women, they soon get caught up in their own deceit, where the layers of mistaken identity confuse and bewilder all involved.

Featuring some of Wilde's most memorable and eccentric characters, this delightful mockery of Victorian sensibilities has plenty of twists and turns, throwing love, logic and language into the air.

The Importance of Being Earnest will be performed by The Questors 74th Student Group.

Running time:
Approx. 2hrs
