Show details

Synopsis


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.

With a cast of 8, this new production plays a limited three week run over June.
