About The Importance of Being Earnest

Touring alongside our popular production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ to several gorgeous locations this summer is Oscar Wilde’s most famous play – ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ by Oscar Wilde. Witness the mad cap escapades of Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrief in this delightful tale of love, mistaken identity and muffins! Watch Cecily and Gwendolyn as they go to war using the mighty weapons of cake and bread and butter and rival each other for the affections of the mysterious Earnest. Will Lady Bracknell relent and allow her daughter to marry the man of her dreams? Will Algernon be christened in time? Will Bunbury live to the end of the performance and will Miss Prism ever find that three volume novel she misplaced all those years ago?

The answers to all these questions and many more may be found in Stuff of Dreams lively and hilarious adaptation of this much – loved comedy. This is your invitation to an unforgettable tea party – but remember ‘cake is rarely seen at the best houses nowadays’.
