Event Description

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People

A comedy realm located somewhere between Downton Abbey and Seinfeld.. . Oscar Wilde set out distinctly to write a comedy about nothing, and he has succeeded with flare and wit. It’s philosophy? According to Wilde, “That we should treat all the trivial things of life very seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality”. At once a commentary on social norms, an exercise in high farce, and rip roaring good time, the play is a brilliant Wildean lecture on The Importance of Being Earnest.
