The trivial comedy for serious people is back.

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 importance!

Following the success of their first national tour in 2022, HangFire Theatre return with a revival of their fastpaced
and hilarious adaptation of Wilde’s famous comic masterpiece.

“Laughed and laughed through tonight’s absolutely brilliant performance of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ What a
“Wow! Wow! Wow! Best version of ‘Importance’ we have ever seen. Loved the whole thing. So funny”

The total running time is 2 hours and 10 mins including the interval.
