The Importance of Being Earnest
This show has now finished

A fast paced gender-swapped retelling of Oscar Wilde's enduringly popular play. Wit, satire and social commentry collide to look at the roles of men and women in theatre in this energetic farce. Follow a group of actors, under the tutelage of Lane and Merriman, get to grips with playing the opposite sex onstage. Larger than life pantomime performance, slick sarcasm and an audience member conscripted to play the role of Miss Prism for the final act make for a recipe for challenging and enthralling whimsy.
