The Importance Of Being Earnest

The Importance Of Being Earnest

Unknown - 2011
Rate this:
Known as one of the greatest comedies written in English, Oscar Wilde's "The importance of being earnest" attacks Victorian manners and morals in what can only be described as the most maliciously delicious way. A witty satire of Victorian social hyposcrisy, Wilde pulls the strings on his cast of late-Victorian characters making them appear, first and foremost, exactly as they are--superficial, upper class Englishmen bound and cinched by an artificial code of manners. This full-cast reading coaxes every nuance of pretension, self-importance, and double entendre from Wilde's lines.
