The Importance of Being Earnest

Oscar Wilde’s brilliant and much-loved comedy of love, manners and mistaken identity has been delighting audiences for over 100 years and now makes a welcome return to Wollongong!

Set within the stifling conventions of Victorian England, two young bachelors have taken to bending the rules and the truth to add a dash of excitement to their lives. Jack invents a brother Ernest as an excuse to leave his dull country life behind so that he may pursue Gwendolen, the delectable daughter of the formidable Lady Bracknell. Across town, Algernon decides to take the name Ernest when visiting Jack’s young ward Cecily. When each gentleman is forced to unwind his web of lies and reveal himself, being “earnest” takes on a whole new meaning.

Grand dame of the Australian theatre, multi-award-winner Nancye Hayes OAM (Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks) brings the formidable and acidic Lady Bracknell to life alongside the elastic and hilarious Nathan O’Keefe (The Comedy of Errors) as Algernon in a theatre event that is guaranteed to delight!

Recommended for ages 12+.
