The Importance of Being Earnest

“You answer to the name of Ernest. You are the most earnest-looking person I ever saw in my life. It is perfectly absurd your saying that your name isn’t Ernest.”

Enjoy classic comedy in Perth Theatre as Lu Kemp directs Oscar Wilde’s trivial comedy for serious people!

Jack and Algernon are best friends. Jack is Ernest in town. Algernon is Ernest in the country. But can two friends ever be Ernest at once? Enter two eligible young ladies, a mother-in-law, a governess, and a baby in a handbag… and suddenly being truly Earnest has never been more important.

A play about the ruling class making the trivial serious and the serious utterly trivial. Surely nothing could be less relevant today…
