The Importance Of Being Earnest


Deryck Woodhall

October 1999


Oscar Wilde's classic English comedy never dates.

Overflowing with style and wit– and much quoted lines “ A handbag!” being probably the most famous. A string of hilarious characters drive a plot based on courtship and engagement – a long-lost child – double lives – manners and whimsy – presided over by that redoubtable dragon Lady Bracknell.
