OSCAR Wilde’s theatrical masterpiece, The Importance Of Being Earnest is widely-acknowledged as one of the greatest comedies in the English Language.

Wonderful characters, sparkling dialogue, gloriously improbable plot twists and a sprinkling of romance - it has it all.

Jack is in love with Gwendolen. Algernon is in love with Cecily. But when an identity crisis spirals out of control, the previously separate worlds of town and country collide and delicious mayhem ensues.  Thoughts of marriage and a happy ending must be put on hold until the inimitable Lady Bracknell can be convinced that the young men are worthy suitors.

The Importance of Being Earnest has delighted millions since its first London performance in 1895. A scintillating comedy of manners, Oscar Wilde’s best-loved work overflows with dazzling wordplay and comic invention. London Classic Theatre will bring this 19th Century classic to vivid, extravagant life with their customary flair, attention to detail, high-quality casting and impeccable production values.

The Importance Of Being Earnest will be staged at The Market Place Theatre in Armagh on Tuesday, October 2 and Wednesday, October 3 at 8pm. Tickets are priced £14.50 and £12 (concession), and bookings can be made by contacting the box office on 3752 1821 or online at www.marketplacearmagh.com
