CSU Theatre: The Importance of Being Earnest
6 W 10th St.
Considered one of the great comedies in the English language, The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, is Oscar Wildes’s 1895 classic satire of social manners and obligations in Victorian England. First performed in 1895 in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play addresses the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage and satirizes Victorian conventions and manners. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde’s most enduringly popular play.
