THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST 

by Oscar Wilde

Tuesday 14 November to

Saturday 2 December 2017 at 7.45pm

 

In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing.

 

John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff are dissatisfied with their tediously mundane lives. To escape the burden of social obligation they attempt to win the hearts of two women who claim to only love men called Ernest. Both men create alter ego’s and become tangled in a web of mishap and misadventure.

 

It is exquisitely trivial, a delicate bubble of fancy, and it has a philosophy…. That we should treat all the trivial things of life very seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality. Oscar Wilde

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken

adapted for the stage by Russ Tunney

13 December - 6 January

 

It is 1832. Wolves roam England, terrorising

the countryside in greater numbers than ever before.

 

At the Willoughby Estate, in the grip of a cruel winter, Bonnie and her orphaned cousin Sylvia are left in the care of the equally chilling governess Miss Slighcarp, whose mysterious plans place the future of Willoughby Chase at risk.

 

As the wolves circle ever closer, the cousins must uncover the treachery that puts their lives in danger and embark on an epic adventure which takes them from the snowy grounds of Willoughby Chase to the dark heart of London.

 

Joan Aiken’s classic novel, loved by generations, is brought to life in this thrilling, funny and heart-warming adaptation. Directed by Kate Bannister and produced by the same team behind The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Haunting and The Mystery of Irma Vep.
