The Importance of Being Earnest
Award-winning director Denzel Westley-Sanderson breathes fresh new life into Oscar Wilde’s sharpest and wittiest comedy: The Importance of Being Earnest.
Wilde’s genius humour meets contemporary culture in this theatrical rollercoaster packed with chart-toppers, shade, wit and plenty of gags.
This vibrant retelling brings warmth, relevance and unique insight to this classic satire about dysfunctional families, class, gender and sexuality.
