The Importance of Being Earnest

Directed by Kerry Ann Doherty

“All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.”

A hilarious farce, The Importance of Being Earnest is one of the cleverest comedies ever written by one of the greatest writers in the English language, The Importance of Being Earnest has delighted audiences since its premiere in 1885. Wilde’s scintillating, hilarious work introduces us to Jack and Algernon, charming bachelors who are each living a double life, aided by a fictional alter ego called “Ernest.”

This quintessential comedy of manners by Oscar Wilde features some of the funniest lines ever written.
