Aaron McCusker has a Wilde time in The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest

June 08, 2012

Aaron McCusker leads the company of The Importance of Being Earnest at The Lyric Belfast.

Aaron, who is best known for his performance as Jamie McGuire in Channel 4’s award winning drama Shameless, plays Algernon in Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy of errors.

Jack and Algernon are two young men looking for an escape from social obligation. Rich, bored and on the lookout for love, they indulge in a witty and dangerous past time; pretending to be something that they are not. When both men sham to be the mysterious Earnest, mishaps and mayhem are bound to ensue - especially when they are trying to woo Cecily and Gwendolyn.


With The Stage calling the production ‘right up Wilde’s street’ The Importance of Being Earnest runs at The Lyric Belfast from the 7 June until the 7 July 2012.
