Bloomshed presents The Importance of Being Earnest

by | Jun 24, 2024

A scandalous revival of Oscar Wilde’s trivial comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest is Bloomshed’s latest take-down of high society. Frills, finery, and frivolity. This delightfully self-aware adaptation transforms Wilde’s irreverent satire into a salacious display of gross indecency. It’s plush punk. Bunbry(ing)*. Cucumber sandwiches where they almost certainly don’t belong. Welcome to the Wilde side.

Bloomshed make critically acclaimed award-winning theatre, pushing the boundaries of what live art is and can be. From immersive installations to radical re-imaginings of classic texts, the company mixes big political ideas with entertaining and accessible storytelling. Bloomshed’s work is a high-octane mess of delicious diatribe, dance breaks, and doom scrolling.

The Green Room award-winning theatre company has recently presented an adaptation of Animal Farm through the Darebin Arts Speakeasy, which received a cacophony of praise.

Since its inception in 2014, Bloomshed has created twelve new and adapted works, presenting at Darebin Arts Speakeasy, Common Rooms x Melbourne Fringe, Theatre Works, Blue Room Theatre, Old 505, Platform Arts, The Butterfly Club, The Wedge, and La Mama Theatre. Bloomshed examines major political issues that attend our era: climate change, class inequality, and corporate greed. They are continually in a dialogue about new ways to reach their audience and empower communities to enact positive change.
