The Importance of Being Wasted

May 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A Wilde-ly Entertaining Drunk Classic

Presented by Act/React

The Importance of Being Wasted is Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy of manners with a twist… of lime, vodka (and maybe a dash of dirty bathtub moonshine), shaken, stirred and served well and truly on the rocks.

This intoxicating take on The Importance of Being Earnest will see half the cast get half cut before before delivering Wilde’s famously wordy witticisms.

Each performance will feature a different combination of trollied thespians trying to keep it together with the help of their sober fellow performers.

Get into high spirits as Act React puts the lit into literature with this Drunk Classic.
