Octagon Theatre Bolton
By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Suba Das

Mistaken identity, scandal, romance and a handbag!

Oscar Wilde’s sensational and lavish tale of witty comedy is brought to life at Bolton’s Albert Halls.

Bachelors and best friends Jack and Algernon create alter egos to escape their tiresome lives. However when they both fall in love and attempt to win the hearts of two women the pair become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure.

A Victorian satire on social obligations, The Importance of Being Earnest is heralded as one of the funniest plays ever written and has delighted audiences for over 100 years.
