The Importance of Being Earnest

2006-2007 National Theatre of Northern Greece
The Importance of Being Earnest - Oscar Wilde
Launch: Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies, 08/03/2007

One of the most loved plays of the universal repertoire, this text of Wilde is admitted to be, and not without reason, as a par excellence sample of great theatrical structure and language. A fascinating comedy, spirited and caustic, satirizing the Victorian gentlemen and their pharisaism as well as the ladies of his time, who absurdly preserve old-fashioned and oppressing institutions. Ingenious and infinite joking, burst of humour, are illustrated in this new translation of the play, which depicts the special style of Wilde and the atmosphere of his time through a fluent archaic use of the Greek language.
