Noosa goes wild for Wilde’s comedy

Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest.

Widely acknowledged as one of England’s funniest plays, Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest is a masterpiece combination of love, logic and language.

Taking place in a world full of gentlemen and ladies, the play sees Jack, Algernon, Gwendolyn and Cecily embark on tumultuous romantic journeys, under the watchful eye of the inimitable Lady


A fresh take on Wilde’s comic masterpiece, Jane River’s directs one of the most well-crafted stage comedies of all time at Noosa Arts Theatre, opening in September.

His immense talent is why director Jane Rivers has called him back from his home town of Sydney to star in The Importance of Being Earnest.
