Happy Birthday Earnest!

Importance 1895 PlaybillHappy Valentine’s Day everyone, and Happy Birthday Earnest! Not only is today the most romantic of all days, the 14 of February also marks the anniversary of the very first production of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’! The play was first performed in St. James’ Theatre, London, on this day in 1895, as you can see from the attached playbill. The fact that the play is still keeping audiences entertained 124 years later is testament to its brilliance and Wilde’s comic wit.
Come along to the Abbey Arts Centre tonight to celebrate with us! Tickets €12/€10. Curtain at 8.30pm.
