The Knaresborough Players are back with their production of Oscar Wilde’s hilarious comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest” from Thursday 31st May to Saturday 2nd June.

Why is Ernest Worthing called ‘Ernest’ in Town and ‘Jack’ in the Country?

Why has Algernon Montcrieff invented an invalid friend called Bunbury who loves in the Country, and whom he visits whenever he feels that he cannot tolerate the demands that London society makes on him?

Why has Cecily Cardew set her heart on only marrying a man whose name is Earnest?

Why does Lady Bracknell – ( “A handbag?!”) – take against Ernest because he has “lost” both his parents?

Oscar Wilde’s famous farcical satire on contemporary Victorian society reveals answers to these questions and much more. First performed at the St James’s Theatre on Valentine’s Day 1895, The Importance of Being Earnest is regarded as Wilde’s wittiest play.
