"A triumphant production" THE BRIGHTON ARGUS

The Importance of Being Earnest

Middle Ground Theatre Company presents Oscar Wilde’s wonderful comedy of mistaken identity. Jack Worthing lives in the country with his pretty ward Cecily Cardew, but when in London he is known as Ernest and is in love with Gwendolen Fairfax. Gwendolen’s cousin is Algernon, but when he travels to Jack’s country house he is also known as Ernest, and is in love with Cecily... Confused?  Well, do try to keep up!

So two bachelors named Ernest, who aren’t… and two beautiful girls who are in love with Ernests... but who aren’t, however will be when they are rechristened! This of course can only mean one thing - Oscar Wilde’s hilarious and timeless masterpiece.

This critically acclaimed production features a lavish set, a specially composed musical score, and is brought to you by the same company as The Holly & the Ivy, Columbo: Prescription Murder and On Golden Pond.
