The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest


MY GIRLFRIENDS and I caught Oscar Wilde’s comedy play ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ over our artsy fartsy weekend. 

And I know I have been reading too many texts by the likes of Elizabeth Townsend, Karen Hammell and Florence Clarke when my ears pricked at the very mention of the word occupation.

Do you smoke?

Well, yes, I must admit I smoke.

I am glad to hear it. A man should always have an occupation of some kind. There are far too many idle men in London as it is.

Never mind that the character Jack Worthing was referring to smoking. But I love that Lady Bracknell responded with how a man should always have an occupation. In occupational therapy terms, spot on! The health-influencing nature of doing – and how it contributes to both our mental and physical well-being. Well, maybe smoking is not exactly a healthy one.

Talk about seeing things through a biased lens!

On a side note, W!ld Rice Productions did an excellent job in delivering the play! I did not expect an all-male cast initially. Especially adored the characters played by Daniel York (Jack Worthing), Ivan Heng (Lady Bracknell) and Hossan Leong (Miss Prism).

Throughly enjoyed my time with the girls too!
