Honest Fool Productions The Importance of Being Nihilists



Described as a ‘wildly enjoyable ride’ (Cherwell.org), The Importance of Being Nihilists combines farce with murder mystery in an absurd exploration of mortality. In a version of Victorian London dashed with anachronism, Desmond Beret lives a "productively idle" life. When someone drops a piano onto his best friend from a second-storey window, a network of characters comes together, united by the crime. A tribute to Oscar Wilde, this is a story of unlikely criminals, dodgy disguises and flawed logic, written and performed by Oxford University students.
