The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde A trivial comedy for serious people
24 July, 7.30pm Village Hall, Lympstone
26 July, 7.30pm Creative Innovation Centre, Taunton
Jack wants to marry Gwendolen, but there are two obstacles: her mother who is a ‘Gorgon’…. and Gwendolen’s ideal ‘to love someone of the name of Ernest’ … Meanwhile, with the discovery that Jack has ‘an excessively pretty ward, who is only just eighteen’, his friend Algy sees the perfect opportunity for some Bunburying at Jack’s place in the country!
These are the ingredients for Oscar Wilde’s most witty confection: lost babies, lost luggage, lost relations – all enhanced by equally witty music by Monica Shallis.
This is a live musical version with songs interspersed in the text.
