The Importance of Being Earnest archiveClassic 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. This hilarious, two-man re-imagining of the classic will delight and entertain in equal measure. This hilarious, two-man re-imagining of the classic will delight and entertain in equal measure. Already recognised as one of the UK's funniest plays, this ingenious, riotous, re-telling of the story has two incredibly talented actors playing every single character. Rapid quick-changes, tap dancing, fabulous frocks and enough tea to sink a ship, audiences are in for a wildly waggish time. It's Oscar Wilde's classic as you've never seen it before, Built by Barn style!
