The Importance of Being Earnest – played by immigrants
Monday January 6, 2020 @ 7:30 pm£12 – £15
‘Where do you come from?’ is often asked in society where the real question we should be asking is ‘Who are you?’
We usually know where we are from, our culture, our upbringing and when we move, we adapt to where we live, the language we speak… We change and we are changed. Yet the question of ‘Who am I?’ is ever present.
This is a story; a group of actors and creatives who spoke their first words in different languages but made the UK their home, and English, the language of their daily toil and nightly poetry.
This is also the story of Algernon who knows where he comes from but doesn’t seem to be clear about who he is; and Earnest who thinks he knows who he is but not where he is from;
a story from the wonderful Oscar Wilde, an immigrant himself.
Pan Productions returns with its first play in English. We bring people from different cultures and languages together to enjoy the English language and explore what it means to be from somewhere else and answer our question of ‘Who are we?’ in England.
