The Importance of Being Earnest


This event has been and gone.

Perth Theatre presents

'You answer to the name of Ernest. You are the most earnest-looking person I ever saw in my life. It is perfectly absurd your saying that your name isn’t Ernest.'

Jack and Algernon are best friends. Jack is Ernest in town. Algernon is Ernest in the country. But can two friends ever be Ernest at once?

Enter two eligible young ladies, a mother-in-law, a governess, and a baby in a handbag… and suddenly being truly Earnest has never been more important.

A play about the ruling class making the trivial serious and the serious utterly trivial. Surely nothing could be less relevant today…
