The Importance of Being Earnest as first performed on 14 February 1895 in London. It’s a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious identities to escape burdensome social obligations. Set in late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Contemporary reviews all praised the play's humour and foresaw it as the culmination of Wilde's artistic career. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play.
Gypsy Stage presents this classic comedy farce with as much sexy, bawdy, over the top, colorful humor as possible. Don’t miss this fantastic production, directed by Brianna Larson.
