L'Importance d'ĂȘtre constant

The Adelaide University French Club is proud to present its 2018 production, L'Importance d'être Constant, a French adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic 'The Importance of Being Earnest: a trivial comedy for serious people'. 

Amid a flurry of witty banter, mistaken identity and cucumber sandwiches, Algernon and Jack must grapple with the consequences of their deceptions as well as the wrath of formidable Lady Bracknell.

Many English-speaking audience members will be familiar with this timeless and hilarious satire on class, marriage and societal expectations. For those unfamiliar with Wilde's work, do not fear! All performances will feature English surtitles, a scene-by-scene guide and plenty of visual entertainment (we've got your back!).
Wednesday 5 September, 1.00pm and 7.00pm.
Thursday 6 September, 1.00pm and 7.00pm. 
Friday 7 September, 1.00pm and 7.00pm.
