PLAY­ING IN EARNEST

Friday - - Leisure Charts -

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.
