'The Importance Of Being Earnest'
by Oscar Wilde




29th March - 3rd April 1982


Bette Ezaz

'Derby Shakespeare Society's Globe Players' made a return to the Guildhall stage in April 1982 with Bette Ezaz's production of 'The Importance Of Being Earnest'.

Between 1977 and 1983 it was customary for plays by authors other than William Shakespeare to be performed under the 'Globe Players' name. Bette's impeccable cast brought Oscar Wilde's wonderful play to life in this production of 'a trivial comedy for serious people'.

We hope to be able to add more information and photographs from this production soon.
