Outdoor Theatre: The Importance of Being Earnest

3rd August 2022

Come and witness this thrilling performance at Upnor Castle this August.

The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

To be successful in love is to be called Ernest. Or so it is in Oscar Wilde’s satirical masterpiece following the story of two eligible bachelors, Jack and Algy.
In love with two women who conveniently claim to only love men named Ernest, Jack and Algy create alter egos called Ernest to win their hearts.
But it’s a struggle to keep up with their own stories and they quickly become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise, and misadventure. The frankly bonkers plot of this play mocks Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved and ludicrous characters to be found on the modern stage.
And if that’s not sold it to you, there’s always that line about the handbag.
