The Importance of Being Earnest
By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Chuck Cornelius
Of The Importance of Being Earnest, Wilde wrote:
It is exquisitely trivial, a delicate bubble of fancy, and it has itís philosophy Ö that we should treat all the trivial things of life seriously, and all the serious and studied things of life with sincere and studied triviality.
At first sight The Importance of Being Earnest may appear to be the trivia Wilde claims of it. Despite this it is has been stated as the most perfect play Wilde wrote, and also the best British play of the 19th Century.
