The Importance of Being Ernest

Saturday, 10 August

by Oscar Wilde

Saturday, 10 August at 19:30 (Running time 1hr 15mins)

at The Guildhall, Priory Park

Ernest is Jack. Ernest loves Gwendolen but she doesn't know he's Jack. Algernon is also Ernest but he loves Cecily. Both Cecily and Gwendolen are particularly fond of the name Ernest, which is good for Ernest but is a problem for both Jack and Algernon. Then there's Gwendolen's mother and Algernon's aunt, Lady Bracknell. She disapproves. Of everything mostly... except cucumber sandwiches....

Performed by just 3 actors, this 'Trivial Comedy for Serious People' will be a fast-paced, one-act adaptation that will truly demonstrate, as Algernon/Ernest observes 'the truth is rarely pure and never simple'
