The Importance of Being Earnest

May 2019: Ceres Hall

Theatre of the Winged Unicorn is proud to present Oscar Wilde’s final and greatest play, The Importance of Being Earnest, in May 2019. An effervescent study of marriage, morality and cucumber sandwiches, Earnest has delighted audiences since its premiere at the St James’ Theatre, London in 1895. With a set designed and built by the inimitable Pett family, and a cast full of Unicorn favourites, this Elaine Mitchell production brings Wilde’s wit and wisdom to the Ceres Temperance Hall stage. Delight in triviality and indulge in a spot of Bunburying with this sharp and stylish production – after all, in matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing!

If, with the literate, I am

Impelled to write an epigram,

I never seek to take the credit;

We all assume that Oscar said it.

– Dorothy Parker
