Oscar Wilde was known for his wit, charm and genius with words and ‘Earnest’, one of his best known works, is described as a ‘trivial comedy for serious people’. With its themes of identity, morality and respectability Wilde held up a mirror to Victorian society and invited his audience to laugh at the picture he presented whether they recognised themselves or not. With its well-known characters and classic Wilde-isms this is sure to be a popular production.
For the first time in the history of the school theatre the performance will be set ‘in the round’ which gives a whole new perspective for the audience and a range of challenges to the actors. So bring your ‘handbag’ and come and meet Lady Bracknell, Jack and Algernon as we explore their stories and celebrate the vital importance of being Earnest.
Our three performances are on: Thursday 6th; Friday 7th and Saturday 8th March at 7pm in The Grange Theatre. Refreshments will be available during the interval.
