The Importance of Being Earnest


Oscar Wilde

Directed by Jan Atkinson assisted by Helen Bingle

7th - 14th December 2013

One of the classic comedies of the English stage, this is the story of young people in love in the fashionable society of the 1890s. The wishes of two young ladies to marry a young man named Earnest when neither of their lovers can claim this distinction is solved, not least, by the owner of a handbag left at a mainline Station (the line is immaterial).
