Being Earnest

Being Earnest, a Musical, based on Oscar Wilde's satirical comedy of manners, The Importance of Being Earnest.




A Groovy 1960s Musical Take on Wilde's Most Popular Play.

Being Earnest takes place in a mod, 1960's, Austin Powers-era setting. All of the brilliant wit in Wilde's most popular play intact in this effervescent musical about two young couples and the societal conventions, over-bearing mothers, and misplaced handbags in railway stations that they must overcome in the course of finding true love. The score is a sparkling homage to 1960's rock groups such as Herman's Hermits, The Dave Clark Five, The Rolling Stones, The Seekers, The Hollies, The Lovin' Spoonful and more.
