The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde
26/07/2013 – 7.30pm ends at approx. 10.00pm.
A delightfully witty comedy with songs – perfect for a Summer’s evening.
Ticket Prices: Adult £10/ Senior & Student £8 / Child £6.
Jack wants to marry Gwendolen, but there are two obstacles: her mother who is a ‘Gorgon’…. and Gwendolen’s ideal ‘to love someone of the name of Ernest’ … Meanwhile, with the discovery that Jack has ‘an excessively pretty ward, who is only just eighteen’, his friend Algy sees the perfect opportunity for some Bunburying at Jack’s place in the country!
These are the ingredients for Oscar Wilde’s most witty confection: lost babies, lost luggage, lost relations – all enhanced by equally witty music by Monica Shallis.
This is a live musical version with songs interspersed in the text.
Who’s it For
Theatre goers of all ages.
A warm and good humoured evening peppered with Wilde’s epigrammatic wit and classic comic characters.
