The Importance of being Earnest by Oscar Wilde


About the show

The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde premiered on February 14th 1895 at the St. James Theatre in London. It is a witty and buoyant comedy of manners and is brilliantly plotted from its effervescent first act to its hilarious denouement. The play is filled with some of literature's most famous epigrams and is widely considered Wilde's most perfect work.
