The Importance of The Importance "A trivial comedy for serious people" is how Oscar Wilde described his apparently pointless high comedy of manners when it opened on Valentine's Day, 1895. One hundred years on, The Importance of Being
Earnest continues to be regarded as a masterpiece of disguised social satire. Paul Doust dips into the handbag with performers, directors and Lady
Bracknells past and present to reveal the travesties and ironic truths behind Wilde's mask of epigrammatic wit. Producer Adrian Wasbourne Repeated Friday at 9.30pm
