Importance Of Being Earnest (theatre)

 Middle Ground Theatre Company are bringing Oscar Wilde's classic comedy The Importance of Being Earnest to the Devonshire Park Theatre at the end of September. This is the same company that brought us On Golden Pond in March, as well as Columbo: Prescription Murder and The Holly & The Ivy so I am confident of a high quality production. 
The current tour stars Corrinne Wicks (Emmerdale), Tom Butcher (The Bill), Sarah Thomas (Last of the Summer Wine), Jim Alexander (The Bill), Sapphire Elia (Emmerdale), David Gooderson (A Touch Of Frost), Gerry Hinks (Coronation Street) and Diane Fletcher (House of Cards) as Lady Bracknell.

Algernon Moncrieff and Jack Worthing uncover they have both been leading dual lives, that is to say they have both been 'bunberrying' for pleasure. Jack lives in the country with his pretty ward Cecily Cardew, but in London he is known only as Earnest and is head over heels in love with Gwendolyn Fairfax. Miss Fairfax’s cousin is Algernon, who, also under the pseudonym of Earnest, goes to the country and falls passionately in love with Jack’s ward Cecily.

Devonshire Park Theatre, Tue 25th to Sat 29th Sep, 19:45.
Wed & Sat matinees, 14:30.
Tickets various prices. Available online, by telephone on 01323 412000 or in person at the Box Office.
