The Importance of Being Earnest

Oscar Wilde's celebrated classic is among the most cherished and frequently performed comedies. This comic masterpiece, which delves into themes of identity, transition, and transformation, consistently captivates audiences with its wit and charm. It's a true testament to the enduring appeal of Wilde's work, and we're excited to present it at UVic for the first time. Guest director and UVic alumnus Alistair Newton promises a fresh perspective on this beloved theatrical gem.

“Knockabout fun with Wilde’s genteel wit” —Mark Fisher, The Guardian
