Dave chats with director Benedicta McGeown who has put together
The Importance of Being Ernest, written by Oscar Wilde At the Playhouse 1 – 16 March 2019
The truth is rarely pure and never simple. Oscar Wilde’s wildly entertaining comedy sparkles with dazzling wordplay and hilariously unlikely situations. Carefree bachelors, Jack and Algernon, each carefully disguise a double life. But when Algernon discovers that Jack has been posing as a man named Ernest to escape to the city, he promptly travels to Jack’s country estate to pose as the fictitious figure himself! Silliness ensues with whimsical ingénues, jealous fiancés and indomitable dowagers.
