A group of young people are rehearsing Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance Of Being Earnest”. It quickly becomes apparent that the task is as daunting as the inexperienced climber trying to climb Mount Everest. As challenges emerge, within Wilde’s ”Comedy Of Manners”, even greater challenges begin to confront the characters within Horowitz’s play. Gradually tensions mount and squabbles ensue. Each young person is taken to breaking point as six very different – and frighteningly similar – personalities become locked in conflict.
The dialogue is truthful, darkly funny and razor sharp.
