“David Phipps-Davis’ takes some action excised from the original by Wilde and adds some back in judiciously. The result is a play that has more laughs, deeper relationships and more characters with which to reflect this silly world and improbable turn of events.” Reviews Hub

ABOUT THE PLAY

 

This new, uproarious production of Oscar Wilde’s timeless tour-de-farce breathes life into one of the most immaculately crafted stage comedies of all time.

Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin, the desirable Gwendolen, but first he must convince her mother, the formidable 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 at Victoria Station.

This production is directed by David Phipps-Davis, who previously directed An Ideal Husband at the Tabard Theatre in 2014. With a cast of eight, this new production plays a limited three-week run over June.

Prepare to take a jovial joyride of double lives and double entendres as town and country collide, throwing love, logic and language into the air – a Wilde-ly funny story of handbags, cucumber sandwiches and absolutely nobody called Ernest.
