The Importance of Being Earnest (2009)

Police have confirmed reports that a baby was indeed found in a handbag in a cloakroom at Victoria Station, London. The child, whose origin is unknown, appears to have had something to do with Near-ta Theatre’s production of The Importance of Being Earnest at The Poly, on the 21st and 22nd August 2009.

Near-ta Theatre were back, this time with a version of Oscar Wilde’s classic story of identity, dishonesty and marriage in the 19th century. With his wonderful dialogue and enthralling characters, and the addition of new and original songs, the show was a hugely entertaining evening!

The Importance of Being Earnest was the tenth show the company performed since December 2004, and their first that wasn’t original writing.
