by Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Ernest is the most famous stage play by the Irish writer Oscar Wilde. It is a comedy of manners, but don't be put off by the “manners” part. You don't need to be a high brow to laugh at the escapades of high brows, especially when the wit is as truly sharp as Mr. Wilde at the top of his game. Not only is the script quite funny, but the plot with its twist and surprising turns will keep you totally engaged. Though this play is still widely performed, it has never been done by Springhouse Theatre before. It's time we corrected that oversight. Come and see why it still delights audiences 126 years after it first opened on Valentine's night.
