The Importance of Being Earnest

There’s something thoroughly comforting about comedies of manners. They’re the theatrical equivalent of re-reading your favourite book and eating nachos when you’re hungover.

Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest is no revolution on stage but it’s full of funny, farcical lines that retain a satirical sting more than a hundred years after the play was first premiered.

The State Theatre Company’s 2014 version promises to be thoroughly watchable and enjoyable with the fine Victorian settings designed by Ailsa Paterson inhabited by the well-respected Nancye Hayes and Adelaide’s favourite stage-stealing son Nathan O’Keefe under direction from Geordie Brookman.

The Importance of Being Earnest is showing until August 16 at the Dunstan Playhouse.
