What's On

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

The Importance Being Earnest by the master of comedy Oscar Wilde, makes a welcome visit to Windsor Society in this wonderfully witty, deliciously decadent and classic revival from The Original Theatre Company.

Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome 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 welcome turn with Wilde’s much-loved Algernon, Jack, Gwendolen and Cecily, as town and country clash in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, perambulators and capacious handbags.

Starring national treasure Gwen Taylor (Coronation Street, Duty Free and Barbara) as the formidable Lady Bracknell, Downton Abbey favourite Thomas Howes as Algernon, West End star Peter Sandys-Clarke as Jack and the delightful Susan Penhaligon (Bouquet of Barbed Wire and A Fine Romance) as the hapless Miss Prism.
