Ampthill and Flitwick Dramatic Society are proud to present

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

TADS Theatre, Toddington, on June 21st, 22nd and 23rd 2018

Directed by Sarah Benjamin

The Importance of Being Earnest (A Trivial Comedy for Serious People) is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ to escape burdensome social obligations. Contemporary reviews all praised the play's humour, while one considered it the culmination of Wilde's artistic career so far. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play.
