About The Event

New World Theatre Club, asbl is excited to bring this classic to life the 13-16 June 2024 and the auditions will be at abovementioned dates. 

The Importance of Being Earnest was first performed in 1895. It is a comedic play that satirizes the conventions and manners of Victorian society. Set in England during the late 19th century, the play follows the lives of two young men, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, who adopt fictional identities to escape social obligations. Jack invents a brother named Ernest, while Algernon creates an invalid friend named Bunbury. The plot unfolds with mistaken identities, clever wordplay, and humorous social commentary.
