* The Importance of Being Earnest *
Artefact Theatre Co. proudly present The Importance of Being Earnest A play by Oscar Wilde Directed by Matthew Cox A trivial comedy for serious people. Young bachelors, Algernon and Jack, lead a detailed double life as they court the attentions of the wonderfully desirable Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. With Gwendolen's formidable mother, Lady Bracknell, also in the mix, Artefact Theatre Co. cordially invites Melbourne audiences to join these gallants as they grapple with mistaken identities, lovers entanglements, and the riotous consequences of their deceptions. Oscar Wilde's exquisitely scandalous satire on Victorian manners is widely considered one of the funniest plays in the English language. The witty repartee and lively piercing of hypocrisy and pomposity has now delighted theatre-goers for over a century. Running for a limited season at St Martins Youth Arts Centre, this latest take on a much-loved classic by local outfit Artefact Theatre Co. promises big laughs and pure fun. It's Oscar Wilde's beloved masterpiece, and it's more outrageous than ever. Founded in 2016, Artefact Theatre Co. is a fully independent, self-funded theatre company dedicated to producing high calibre, memorable theatre. Past productions include Seminar by Theresa Rebeck and David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Proof. "Simply brilliant... terrific theatre" - Stage Whispers (Seminar, 2016) Directed by Matthew Cox Lighting Design by Giancarlo Salamanca Costume Design by Jacqueline Day Set Design by Mark Kowalyov Hair and Make Up Design by Kelsey Oberin Produced by Adam Porrett Production Coordinator - Sarah Cuthbert Stage Manager - Alexandra Knight Performed by James Cutler, Mark Raymond Yeates, Ross Dwyer, Olivia Solomons, Cazz, Suzanne Sandow, Frank Handrum and Thomas Henry Jones 27 March - 7 April, 2018 Tues - Sat 7:30pm, Sat 2pm, Sun 6:30pm Tickets: $40 Full, $35 Concession, $25 Preview Bookings: online only at www.artefacttheatre.com or at the door (subject to availability) Enquiries: 0420 350 914 Venue: St Martin's Youth Arts Centre - 28 St Martins Ln, South Yarra, VIC www.artefacttheatre.com #ArtefactTheatreCo #artefactgoeswilde
