The Importance of Being Earnest By Oscar Wilde
Oscar Wilde’s brilliant play makes fun of the English upper classes with light-hearted satire and dazzling humour. The play focuses on Jack and Algernon, two young men in love with girls who are both determined to marry someone named Earnest.
It was first performed for the public on February 14, 1895 at the St. James’ Theatre in London, and is regarded by many critics and scholars as being the wittiest play in the English language.
This classic play was selected to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Marlow Players and sadly, the passing one of the founder members, Russell Sage.
