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.
Prepare to take a jovial joyride of double lives, double entendres, and labyrinthine twists and turns as town and country collide throwing love, logic and language into the air in this Wilde-ly funny story of handbags, cucumber sandwiches and absolutely nobody called Ernest.
Oscar Wilde's timeless tour-de-farce, this new uproarious production of 'The Importance of Being Earnest' at the Tabard Theatre breathes vital life into one of the most immaculately crafted stage comedies of all time.
This production is directed by David Phipps-Davis who directed An Ideal Husband at the Tabard Theatre in 2014.
With a cast of 8, this new production plays a limited three week run over June.
