2009 - The Importance of Being Earnest

Director: Peter Gilbert

The Importance of Being Earnest is a play by Oscar Wilde. It is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious persona in order to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play’s major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. imprisonment. His notoriety caused the play, despite its early success, to be closed after 86 performances. After his release, he published the play from exile in Paris, but he wrote no further comic or dramatic work (Wikipedia).
