The Importance of Being Earnest presented by Bloomshed

Town: Melbourne

Address: 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, 3000, VIC

Community Event, Concert or Performance

A scandalous revival of Oscar Wilde’s trivial comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest is Bloomshed’s latest take-down of high society. Frills, finery, and frivolity. This delightfully self-aware adaptation transforms Wilde’s irreverent satire into a salacious display of gross indecency. Cucumber sandwiches where they almost certainly don’t belong. Welcome to the Wilde side.

Bloomshed make critically acclaimed award-winning theatre, pushing the boundaries of what live art is and can be. From immersive installations to radical re-imaginings of classic texts, the company mixes big political ideas with entertaining and accessible storytelling.
