The Importance of Being Earnest (Act 1)

ImportanceOfBeing Earnest

Members of the U3A Play Reading Group plan to present Act I as a radio play. But there will be some visual props!

Luckily the play (by Oscar Wilde) is high farce set in the late Victorian era. So if they ham it up it may be a very high farce!

OscarWilde

The play is full of classic one liners such as:

“If I am occasionally a little over-dressed, I make up for it by being always immensely over-educated.”

“I don’t like novels that end happily. They depress me so much”

The play should take about 40 minutes
