“On one hand,” The importance of being Ernest “is a walk through the decomposing of norms. On the other hand, we live in a time where we are faced with the problem of (not) accepting diversity. It’s no secret that anyone who doesn’t belong to the mainstream in the erotic, or any other sense, has to do much hiding. „Ernest“ speaks in a very smart, intelligent, humorous, occasional and lascivious way about what to do with the problem of (non) acceptance of diversity by society. More than topical. But this is only one of the dimensions of the play, because the piece is actually an apology of intelligence, an apology of education, an apology of the high-mindedness and brilliance of the mind, which enables one to switch and jump into any social sphere, gives freedom, gives credibility. ”- Nikola Zavisic
