THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
by Oscar Wilde
directed by Mark Winstanley
November 6th to 10th 2018 - Amsterdam
Wilde’s definitive comedy of manners is given the QETC treatment. A fast-moving, brand new, outrageous and contemporary take on Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece. This show features male actors in the seven principal roles plus a talented male and female supporting cast.
Famed as much for Lady Bracknell’s one-liners and rich dialogue as for its exquisite and witty storyline, The Importance of Being Earnest has delighted millions since it’s first London performance in 1895. Jack’s alter-ego Ernest, allows him to escape his life in the country to live the London high-life. When wily seducer Algernon discovers his deception, he is inspired to impersonate Ernest himself. Both masquerade as Ernest to pursue their respective love interests. The result - a gay and wildly funny story of romance, identity and handbags. QETC’s brand new, all-male interpretation guarantees you an evening of outrageous, contemporary comedy whilst remaining true to the wit, character and very nature of Oscar Wilde himself.
Booking opens May 2018.
