The Importance of Being Earnest

ow.jpg Today at the Arts Council  Oscar Wilde’s comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest” was brought alive by a group of incredibly talented young performers. It was a very well directed and an excellently presented play, with such great performance by all actors that not for even a second one would feel that the actor has come out of his character.

The play provided a good two hour entertainment with audience completely spellbound by the characters of Oscar Wilde who are playing on a plot which is laid to shed light on the social issues reflecting the assumptions which reflect the conventional preoccupations of what the  Victorian respected people for, that is their social position, income and character. The play also highlights how hypocritical we get at times for our own interests. The play revolves around the importance of being “Earnest” which for the writer is a notion of fabricated truths, moralities and shallow persona we all live in to prove our selves to be respectable.

The play is an incredible work of fiction which the K.B Thespian Productions has Brought to life for the people Of Karachi to see.

For those of you who want enjoy this amazing play and performance, the play is showing daily till the 9th of march, 2008 at The Arts Council Karachi, starting around 7:00 pm.

Tickets are available at the venue.

    started off a bit late .. the organizer came up with the lamest of all excuse – traffic. But I was amazed with the dexterous work of the director who himself was playing the role of Earnest/John. Splendid performances by Lodhi and Ahmad ali. They were simply marvelous with such control over their characters that they aroused the whole victorian era during the play.

    The first time I read The Importance of Being Earnest was way back in 1957/58. I read it again in 1995. Few years back I saw the play performed by the girls of OPF College, Islamabd. I liked watching the play as much as reading it.
    Guys, it is a great play. Go and see it. You will enjoy it EVEN if the performance is not top class (I don’t mean it isn’t).
