The Teatro Lara in Madrid (C/ Corredera Baja de San Pablo, 15) presents from 8 August to 1 September in its Sala Cándido Lara The importance of being Ernest, Oscar Wilde’s most brilliant, punk, sexy and amusing comedy; a biting critique of false appearances and hypocrisy, which takes place along a labyrinthine romantic entanglement (check the theatre’s programme and opening times on the website).
Gwendolen is in love with Ernest. And Cecily is also in love with Ernest. The problem is that Ernest doesn’t exist. Jack is in love with Gwendolen, and Algernon is in love with Cecily. The two of them could only love them… if they were Ernest. And both of them are willing to be Ernest, for love, although in reality neither of them is Ernest. The truth is that no educated lady could love a man who was not an honest Ernest.
