download

- SYNOPSIS -

Two romeos bend the truth to spice up their love lives. Jack has invented a brother, Ernest, whom he uses to escape his dull country life and to woo the ravishing Gwendolyn. His best friend, Algernon, also decides to take the name ‘Ernest’ to cosy up to Jack’s beautiful ward, Cecily, in the country. But things spin hilariously out of control when their deceptions are discovered, threatening to spoil their romantic pursuits.

Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest is one of the world’s most popular comedies, boasting some of the funniest lines in the English language. In WILD RICE’s award-winning production, celebrated theatre and film director Glen Goei puts a joyous spin on this comic masterpiece by casting an all-male ensemble – revealing fresh insights into this classic tale about courtship, hidden identities and the foibles of high society.

With a sensational international cast, dressed to the nines by renowned fashion doyen Frederick Lee and accompanied live by The Concordia Quartet, The Importance of Being Earnest promises to lift your spirits with an evening of sparkling wit, laughter and love.

“WILD RICE has grasped The Importance of Being Earnest with both hands, and performed it at its extravagant best.” – Limelight Magazine, Australia

“Strong camaraderie onstage with a peculiarly powerful mix of testosterone and coquettish teasing…” – The Straits Times

“Visually ravishing and extremely compelling” – The Business Times
