Synopsis of the play:
The Importance of Being Earnest by the master of comedy Oscar Wilde, underwent a Malaysian-flavoured transformation and is now making its debut in the Malaysian society in UCSI University.
Jack Jamek wishes to marry Adam Megat's cousin, the beautiful and stunning Gwen Wong, but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Datin Ros, of the respectability of his parents as well as his own past.
However, this is not as easy as it sounds for Jack, who started his life as an abandoned baby in a handbag at a LRT Station.
Prepare for an adventure with the much-loved cast of the play as town and country clash in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, prams and capacious handbags.
From 21st September 2018 to 21st September 2018
UCSI University, Jalan Puncak Menara Gading, Taman Connaught, Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
