Hold onto your handbags and hone your Wildean wit in this interactive and hilarious twist on The Importance of Being Earnest.

A faithful revival of Wilde’s classic play is in chaos after the cast start dropping like flies. Now it’s up to YOU to tread the boards, step into the spotlight and save the show!

Hailed as “a masterclass in comedic theatre” (North West End UK) and “meticulously planned and completely improvised” (A Younger Theatre), The Importance of Being... Earnest? is a guaranteed great night out. If you loved The Play That Goes Wrong and Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare, this five-star, sell-out show is a delicious mix of both – and different every night!
