The Importance of Being Earnest
Oscar Wilde billed his play as ‘a trivial comedy for serious people’, and its witty dialogue and fabulous characters are sure to delight both serious and flippant audiences alike.
‘In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing.’
– Gwendolyn, Act III
Six versatile actors and DOT Productions’ renowned style bring this much loved masterpiece to you in all its satirical glory.
Two bachelors; the seemingly responsible John Worthing J.P, and the charming and frivolous Algernon Moncrieff; both lead double lives in order to court Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. This leads to a riotous comedy of mistaken identities, and encounters with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
