    The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

    The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

    A trivial comedy for serious people.

    Mistaken identity and romance collide with cucumber sandwiches and a handbag in Oscar Wilde’s much-loved comedy of manners.

    Jack loves Gwendolen. Algernon loves Cecily; though both of them are engaged to the roguish Ernest- much to the disapproval of the formidable Lady Bracknell.

    Unfortunately, Ernest doesn’t actually exist, and when his true identity is revealed being earnest takes on a whole new meaning.

    Following sell-out runs of their previous productions The Twelve Pound Look and A Doll’s House, HangFire embark on their first national tour with a revival of their fast-paced and hilarious adaptation of Wilde’s famous comic masterpiece.
