Back by popular demand!THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNESTby Oscar Wilde directed by Mark WinstanleyCC Amstel Theater
"Captivating... intriguing, witty, razor-sharp words... It’s clear that this is a fun and entertaining night at the theatre."- Matthew Curlewis, ArtsTalk Magazine
100% sold out in 2018, Wilde’s definitive comedy of manners is back owing to popular demand. A fast-moving, brand new, outrageous and contemporary take on Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece. This show features male actors in the seven principal roles plus a talented male and female supporting cast.
Famed as much for Lady Bracknell's one-liners and rich dialogue as for the exquisite and witty storyline, The Importance of Being Earnest has delighted millions since it's first London performance in 1895. Jack's alter-ego Ernest, allows him to escape his life in the country to live the London high-life. When wily seducer Algernon discovers his deception, he's inspired to impersonate Ernest himself. Both masquerade as Ernest to pursue their respective love interests. The result - a gay and wildly funny story of romance, identity and handbags. QETC's all-male interpretation guarantees you an evening of outrageous, contemporary comedy while remaining true to the wit, character and very nature or Oscar Wilde himself.
"Witty, sharp and convincing modern settings of ...The Importance of Being Earnest. I loved the Q-cumber Sauna and Aunt Augusta couldn't be funnier!"- Henk Burger, writer gay romcom Gewoon Vrienden
"I didn’t know Oscar Wilde personally, but I’m pretty sure he would’ve wholeheartedly approved of the fresh approach. It would be impossible not to!"- Dana Marin, Amsterdamian
"OMG I had such a fun time! LOOOOOVED the play!!!"- davedelareza (Instagram)
This show will be in the state-of-the-art CC Amstel theater, a 154 seater, which opened in September 2018.
