The importance of catching Wilde’s masterpiece

OSCAR Wilde’s theatrical masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest will be staged by the London Classic Theatre company in Glór next week.

 

Widely-acknowledged as one of the greatest comedies in the English language, the play is full of interesting and complex characters, sparkling dialogue, gloriously improbable plot twists and a sprinkling of romance.

Jack is in love with Gwendolen; Algernon is in love with Cecily; but when an identity crisis spirals out of control, the previously separate worlds of town and country collide and delicious mayhem ensues.

Thoughts of marriage and a happy ending must be put on hold until the inimitable Lady Bracknell can be convinced that the young men are worthy suitors.

The Importance of Being Earnest has delighted millions since its first London performance on Valentine’s Day in 1895.

London Classic Theatre brings this 19th century classic to vivid, extravagant life with their customary flair, attention to detail, high-quality casting and impeccable production values.

On stage on Wednesday, February 20 and Thursday, February 21 at 8pm, for booking details visit www.glor.ie or contact 065 6843103.
