“The Importance of Being Earnest” is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde’s comedies. It’s the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise, and misadventure.
The elaborate plot ridicules Victorian sensibilities with some of the best-loved, and indeed bizarre, characters to be found on the modern stage.
Come and see Penguin Productions‘ fresh take on this quirky tale, breathing new life into this iconic (and hilarious) play.
“I can’t eat muffins in an agitated manner, the butter would probably get on my cuffs. One should always eat muffins quite calmly, it is the only way to eat them.”
“I am occasionally a little overdressed, I make up for it by being always immensely over-educated.”
“The good ended happily and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.”
