The Importance of Being Earnest
Information for The Importance of Being Earnest at Etcetera Theatre, Inner London (Play). Classic turn-of-the-century comedy of social manners. A very complicated plot that includes the famous "A Handbag!" line .. Jack Worthing is in love with Gwendolen Fairfax, daughter of the redoubtable Lady Bracknell, and cousin of his friend Algernon. They cannot wed until the mystery of his parentage (he was found in a handbag on Victoria Station) is resolved. Algy discovers that Jack has a pretty young ward, Cecily, living at the Manor and visits her pretending to be Jack's fictitious (and wicked) brother Ernest. Abiku Theatre takes The Importance of Being Earnest and tips it on its head, evoking all of Wilde's wackiness and sharp sense of humour. Will Jack and Algernon be caught out? Can Gwendolen and Cecily's wish come true? And whhhhere is the baby, Prism?!
Author Oscar Wilde. Company Abiku Theatre. Director Andrew Peacham.
