PLAYING IN EARNEST
Indulge in some side-splittingly hilarious theatre next weekend with the trivial comedy for serious people, Oscar Wilde’s timeless masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest, at the Courtyard Playhouse in Al Quoz. Grab some popcorn (or cucumber sandwiches) and sit back as the Dubai Drama Group’s performance of the witty critique of Victorian hypocrisy transports you to 1890s’ England. Don’t laugh too long though, or you’ll miss the brilliant one-liners. There will be four evening performances and two matinees from October 20-24. Reserve seats at courtyardplayhouse.com/whats-on. Entry is by a suggested donation of Dh90.
