Th'Importance of Bein' Earnest at The Drayton Arms Theatre


by Oscar Wilde directed by Luke Adamson & Toby Hampton Jack loves Gwendolen, Gwendolen loves Ernest, Algy loves Cecily, Cecily loves Ernest, Gwendolen's Ernest is Jack, Cecily's Ernest is Algy and who on Earth is Burnbury!? Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest is a trivial comedy for serious people. LKT Productions' vivid reimagining of everyone's favourite classic comedy relocates the action from Victorian London to a Yorkshire Council estate. The muscularity of the Yorkshire accent breathes new life into those famous lines and the reconfigured social structure offers a brand new examination of class. Gone are the starched collars and cups of tea, in are the Leeds United football shirts and cans of Stella. Wilde meets Shameless in this exciting new production that promises to be one not to miss!
