‘The truth is rarely pure and never simple.’
This hysterical study of the Victorian leisure class is one of the funniest plays ever written. But this “trivial play for serious people” – as Oscar Wilde dubbed it – is also full of social and sexual ironies beneath its sunny and blithely irresponsible surface.
A laughter-filled comedy of inversion, The Importance of Being Earnest was the first ever-production in the Library Theatre back in 1952, and is being fittingly revived to mark the company’s final production in its present home.
