THE NORWICH PLAYERS Present

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST by Oscar Wilde

Directed by Jeffrey Davies

Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest is regarded by many as his best and most popular play. A satire targeting Victorian upper-crust society; their behaviour and expectations, marriage (two young ladies who will only marry a man if his name is Earnest), religion, and the Arts. Wilde weaves this into an elegant comedy with some of the most quotable lines of any play, such as ‘To lose one parent … may be regarded as a misfortune, to lose both looks like carelessness’.

To quote Wilde himself, “The Importance of Being Earnest is exquisitely trivial, a delicate bubble of fancy. But it has its philosophy; that we should treat all trivial things of life seriously and all the serious things with sincere and studied triviality”.

This famous delightful comedy should not be missed!
