A classic Oscar Wilde comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest, is playing at Titchfield Festival Theatre from 25-29 June.

Martha Austin, director of The Importance of Being Earnest, said: "I first fell in love with Oscar Wilde's writing when I saw a version of the Importance of Being Earnest while at university.

"This play is all about the importance of not taking oneself too seriously, and letting life lead you in adventure.

"Wilde shows time and time again that not taking oneself too seriously and embracing a certain light-heartedness and flexibility in life can be more genuine and fulfilling than adhering to expected social conventions.

"The Importance of Being Earnest is a masterclass in ridiculous Victorian social norms, highlighting the equally ridiculous social rules we still live by today."
