GEDS (Geneva English Drama Society): the home of English language theatre in Geneva!

Théâtre de l’Espérance

February 27-March 3, 2018

A trivial comedy for serious people.This iconic piece of English theatre is an effervescent, laugh out loud comedy of manners. With incisive wit and gentle disdain, Oscar Wilde affectionately satirises the intricate social customs and futile pretentions of the English aristocracy in his most celebrated play. Upper class bachelors Algernon Moncrieff and Jack Worthing concoct false identities for social convenience as well as to win over their ladyloves, Gwendolen and Cecily. But they must also manage Gwendolen’s formidable and hilariously pompous mother, Lady Bracknell, and a host of characters who contribute wittingly or unwittingly to the deception.

Director Jenny Buffle’s slightly more modern setting lends a delicious new take on this much loved classic. So don’t miss this blockbuster and decide for yourself whether “Bunburying” really does have a hidden message!
