Publisher's Summary

The Importance of Being Earnest is undoubtably Oscar Wilde's best known play probably due to its sharp wit that cannot help but enchant and entertain any reader, theatregoer or listener with this performance.

Here his economic and finely honed words are delivered by a superb cast that is headed by England's finest, namely Sir John Gielgud and Dame Edith Evans that help make this the ultimate listening experience for fans of classic theatre.

Excellent and highly recomnrnded.

John Gielgud and Edith Evens are the only voices who convey the quintessential essence of the period. Such clarity of diction and professional acting.
Wonderful performance.
Thoroughly enjoyable.

Always a favourite

Old recording but one with top notch actors and of course what is probably the best last line ever

Awful sound quality

Surely with modern technology the sound levels could be improved even though I think this is an old stage recording.

Charming and very funny

I enjoyed this charming, funny and quirky short story. The major let down was the audio quality, I was constantly having to fiddle with the volume as characters were loud one minute and quiet the next. The sound is very poor quality. It sounds like a recording of a play which is great and something I usually like however whoever recorded this must have done it on their phone from the back of the theatre.

Classic play

Short fun play with witty dialogue. However I found the voice of actors grating and rather old for the parts of young teenagers and mid 20 somethings.
