THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST - OSCAR WILDE 'LIVE' via satellite at the Festival Drayton Centre

The Importance Being Earnest by the master of comedy Oscar Wilde, makes a welcome return to 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, Broadway and West End star Kerry Ellis sharing the role of Gwendolen with Hannah Louise Howell and the delightful Susan Penhaligon (Upstairs Downstairs and Bergerac) as the hapless Miss Prism.
