Oscar Wilde’s wonderfully witty and deliciously decadent comedy masterpiece is brought to life this summer in a brilliantly funny new production packed with sparkling dialogue, razor-sharp wit and electric performances.
Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Lady Bracknell, of the respectability of his parents and his past. For Jack, however, this is not as easy as it sounds, having started life abandoned in a handbag.
Prepare to take a jovial joyride of double lives and double entendres, throwing love, logic and language into the air in a wildly funny story of handbags, cucumber sandwiches and absolutely nobody called Ernest!
£28.50 - £14.50 (concessions available)
