Theatre – ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ at the Open Air Theatre at Regent’s Park (3 to 25 July)


The Importance of Being Earnest
Oscar Wilde’s smartest comedy

“Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone”

What happens when two pretty girls both fall in love with men they believe to be called Ernest? Will they learn that a rose by any other name still smells as sweet?

A well-manicured comedy of handbags, button-holes and flying coat-tails, specially conceived for an outdoor setting.
