Company Theatre transports you to the 1890’s, to Victorian England, for a performance of enchantment and hilarity.

The Importance of Being Earnest is Oscar Wilde's most brilliant tour de force, a witty and buoyant comedy that has delighted millions in countless productions.

This superb satire is one of the funniest plays in the English language-the delightful repartee and hilarious piercing of hypocrisy and pomposity will make you laugh out loud.

Two bachelor friends, the dandy Algernon Moncrieff and the utterly reliable John Worthing, lead double lives to court the attentions of the exquisitely desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew.

The gallants must then grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions, as well as with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
