Elizabeth is very pleased to announce the release of The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, presented by The Online Stage. This full-cast production is now available at Audible, where you can listen to an audio sample. Elizabeth reads the role of Lady Bracknell in this classic play.
The Importance of Being Earnest is Wilde’s most famous and oft-produced play. First performed in 1895, and subtitled “A Trivial Comedy for Serious People”, it shows Wilde at his satirical and scathingly witty best. It follows the misadventures of Algy and Jack as they attempt to woo and wed Cecily and Gwendolen under the assumed name “Ernest”, much to the disapproval of the aristocratic Lady Bracknell.
