On Wednesday 3rd Feb, A Level Drama and Theatre Studies students travelled to Dublin to watch Oscar Wilde’s brilliant comedy ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’.
“Double lives abound in Oscar Wilde’s peerless comedy. At its center is a man who is Earnest in the town, and Jack in the country, whose decadent friend Algernon uses a false alibi for regular disappearances, and whose young ward Cecily records a parallel existence in her diary. Others escape, routinely, into a sensational world of fiction. For all the glittering epigrams of Wilde’s creation, its most subversive and effervescent conceit is to show characters living a lie until it finally becomes true.” The Irish Times
