The Importance of Being Earnest (PG)

Afternoon Arts

the cast collects together on stage for a final showdown

A brilliantly funny and charming production of one of Oscar Wilde's funniest plays

Wilde’s much-loved masterpiece throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theatre’s most dazzling firework displays. Jack, Algy, Gwendolyn and Cecily discover how unsmooth runs the course of true love, while Lady Bracknell keeps a baleful eye on the mayhem of manners.

Michael Fentiman’s adaptation stars Olivier Award winner Sophie Thompson and Jeremy Swift, alongside Fiona Button, Pippa Nixon and Stella Gonet.
