The Importance of Being Earnest.
The Original Theatre Company presents The Importance of Being Earnest
By Oscar Wilde | Directed by Alastair Whatley
The Importance Being Earnest by the master of comedy Oscar Wilde, makes a welcome visit to Hereford 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, the delightful Susan Penhaligon (Bouquet of Barbed Wire and A Fine Romance) as the hapless Miss Prism, Downton Abbey favourite Thomas Howes as Algernon and with Broadway and West End star Kerry Ellis as Gwendolen.
