Upcoming Project

ET Cetera’s 2022 project announcement

This year, ET Cetera is preparing The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.

“The truth is rarely pure and never simple”

The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest was written in 1895 and was labeled as “Trivial Comedy for Serious People”. Oscar Wilde depicts the Victorian social hypocrisy through his perfectly flawed characters.

Jack Worthing, a man who emanates seriousness and respectability, invents an eccentric brother named Ernest whose alleged mischievous deeds give Jack a reason to travel to London systematically to rescue him.

Gwendolen Fairfax is as sophisticated as she is pretentious and is entirely devoted to Jack Worthing, whom she believes to be called Ernest.

Cecily Cardew, a young but not so innocent girl, is seduced by the misdeeds of Jack’s supposed brother without ever meeting him.

Meanwhile, Algernon Moncrieff, Jack’s best friend and the epitome of a dandy, poses as Ernest to woo Cecily.

When Jack, Gwendolen, Cecily and Algernon meet at Cardew Manor on the same weekend, mayhem ensues as the women quarrel for the exclusive attention of the pretend Ernest whilst the men try to claim back their sweethearts.

In the middle of this pandemonium, only a resentful tutor and a mislaid old handbag can unravel this mess…
