Abstract

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, the much loved play about two men who take on the name Ernest in the hopes of wooing the women who have their affections. The play is one of trivialities, providing a satirical commentary on the most trivial of all aspects of life; society itself. Director Christopher Hosking takes this entertaining play, often seen as frivolous, in a unique direction, setting it in the vibrant colours, music and excitement of the Jazz Age.
