The Importance of Being Earnest

HangFire Theatre




Showing at

The Main Theatre

Thursday 17 March: 7.30pm
Tickets: £15

A trivial comedy for serious people. 

Mistaken identity and romance collide with cucumber sandwiches and a handbag in Oscar Wilde’s much-loved comedy of manners. 

Jack loves Gwendolen. Algernon loves Cecily; though both of them are engaged to the roguish Ernest - much to the disapproval of the formidable Lady Bracknell. Unfortunately, Ernest doesn’t actually exist, and when his true identity is revealed being earnest takes on a whole new meaning. 

Following sell-out runs of their previous productions, The Twelve Pound Look and A Doll’s House, HangFire embark on their first national tour with a revival of their fast-paced and hilarious adaptation of Wilde’s famous comic masterpiece. 

Laughed and laughed through tonight’s absolutely brilliant performance of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ What a tonic!” Audience member 

“Wow! Wow! Wow! Best version of ‘Importance’ we have ever seen. Loved the whole thing. So funny.” Audience member
