“…I’m pretty sure Oscar Wilde would’ve wholeheartedly approved of the fresh approach. It would be impossible not to!”

Famed as much for Lady Bracknell’s one-liners and rich dialogue as for its 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 is 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 an evening of outrageous, contemporary comedy whilst remaining true to the wit, character and very nature of Oscar Wilde himself.

This show is at the state of the art CC Amstel, a 154 seater, which opened in September 2018. The theatre is at the new Cullinanplein 1, Amsterdam.
