The Importance Of Being Earnest

On the evening of Friday 7 December the students of James Gillespie's staged this wonderful Oscar Wilde play. First performed on 14 February 1895 at St James's Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae in order to escape burdensome social obligations.

This will be the last play performed on the school stage before it is demolished as part of the new school build. The entire production was organised and executed by students with help from Messrs Hardie and Zulleman from our Dram department.

I was hugely impressed at how professional the entire show was. The voices were clear, the costumes superb and the acting was first class. The 250+ audience enjoyed a superb evening in the company of confident assured senior students, who, should they choose to, have a wonderful future ahead of them on the stage.
