THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

  • Description

    Possibly Oscar Wilde's most famous play, first performed in the St. James's Theatre in 1895 it continues to be adapted, televised, revived and has three film outings, a real work-horse since the day of its release. I took this show in last weekend at Darlington Civic Theatre, not bad at all and as my wife reminded me "its just like Hamlet: full of quotes". And so it is, lot to choose from but this one has a certain ring to it: “I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone. The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever.” Oscar Wilde, 1854-1900.
