Sydney Theatre Company - The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest

Presented by Sydney Theatre Company

The fabulous Helen Thomson plays Lady Bracknell, the wittiest and most wicked role in one of the greatest comedies ever written.
By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Sarah Giles

The fabulous Helen Thomson (Death of a Salesman, Baz Lurhmann's Elvis) is back as Lady Bracknell, the wittiest and most wicked role in one of the greatest comedies ever written.

Algernon Blackwood and Jack Worthington are two best friends who are both living double lives.
In the city they're playboys with a libertine reputation, but in the country they assume pious alter egos to get away from it all. Things get sticky when love enters the mix and the men have to keep track of who they're pretending to be and when. Floating haughtily above it all is the withering Lady Bracknell, Victorian London's socialite extraordinaire and the gatekeeper of all things high society.

In The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde rips the covers off Victorian propriety and relishes in the unbridled silliness and snobbery of London's upper classes.
In this production, director Sarah Giles (No Pay? No Way!) will dial up the luxuriant excess and the scandalised absurdity to create an unforgettable night of side-splitting hilarity.

The gold standard of theatrical comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest is a razor-sharp and endlessly relevant reminder of our tendency to get hung up on small trivialities while the big, important things in life pass us by.
