The Importance of being Earnest (2022)

BMTC are proud to present Oscar Wilde’s best and most well known play The Importance of being Earnest. A trivial comedy for serious people that looks at the foolishness and frippery of the upper classes.

Two bachelors get tangled up in a web of lies as they try to win the hearts of the girls they love. When their lies catch up with them they both have some serious explaining to do. Will the girls accept their explanations and forgive them? Will they manage to work through their own issues? and will their marriages be approved or will the handbag scandal prove too much?

This classic tale of love, lies and mistaken identity is not to be missed.
