This brilliant tour de farce is a witty and buoyant comedy of manners that has entertained millions in countless productions, on stage and screen, since its first performance in London’s St. James’ Theatre. It revolves wittily around the most ingenious case of "manufactured" mistaken identity, which the protagonists maintain to escape burdensome social obligations. A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, this masterpiece is as delightful now as when it was first performed. “Keep calm and go Bunburying!”

"The Importance of Being Earnest" is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde’s comedies. It’s the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives (and chase women without accountability). They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure. The elaborate plot ridicules Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved, and indeed bizarre, characters to be found on the modern stage.
