The Importance of Being Earnest - Classic Spring

Spotlight Theatre

Widely considered one of the funniest plays in English, Wilde's much loved masterpiece throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theatre's most dazzling firework displays.

Two bachelors, John 'Jack' Worthing and Algernon 'Algy' Moncrieff create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives and then 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.
