About this event

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 features 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. 

“A joyous celebration of the intoxicating power of Oscar Wilde.” Ride Home Reviews, 2021

"If you want a Wilde night out on the town, then this is the production for you.” Broadway World, 2021
