poster for playThe Department of Drama and Speech Communication presents Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Stewart Arnott.

Whenever Jack Worthing slips away to London from his Hertfordshire estate he says he is going to see his wayward brother “Ernest”. Once there, he keeps his privacy by calling himself Ernest - luckily so, as his beloved Gwendolen declares she could only love a man with that name! 

This wonderfully absurd farce is still considered one of the truly great comedies in the English language almost 120 years after its debut in London.  Oscar Wilde's masterpiece, which he called “A Trivial Comedy for Serious People”, is a subversive and cockeyed mirror held up to English society in the late Victorian era that still manages to reflect back on us in the 21st century.
