The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde.

Wilde’s endearing and enduring comedy promises to delight with mistaken identities, romance, social commentary and a touch of fantasy!

This special 90-minute, one-act adaptation is given a fantastical and playful contemporary setting brought to life by a company of talented local actors and directed by Capitol Theatre’s Artistic Director, Susan Ferley.  The cast includes several Northumberland Players and other luminous local talents.
