The Importance of Being Earnest

7 — 8 March 2013

By Miracle Theatre Company at the Hall For Cornwall.

Oscar Wilde’s ‘trivial comedy for serious people’ is a masterpiece of sharp wit and preposterous plotting.


Such ‘beautiful nonsense’ cries out for the sort of playful treatment that has become Miracle’s hallmark.

Set in the year 1912, with the Titanic sinking, mass production just beginning on the Morris Oxford and the Turkey Trot causing outrage across the dance floors of polite society, this tale of the strange contents of a handbag found at Victoria station has been subtly adapted to extract every drip of humour and contemporary relevance. In this high energy production Miracle adds an extra dimension to ‘the funniest play ever written'.

'A superb production – Oscar would have LOVED it. DIVINE!'
'We had a marvellous time and continued to giggle most of the way home.'
