The Importance of Being Earnest

12th August 7:30pm - 10:00pm


Everybody loves Ernest. In fact, Cecily and Gwendolen are both engaged to Ernest. The only trouble is, Ernest doesn’t exist. Or does he…? This energetic and musical production from the critically-acclaimed company Pantaloons infuses Wilde’s witty words with snappy new songs and frantically funny physical theatre to give this perennially popular play a hilarious contemporary twist!

Bring a low backed chair or a rug and your own picnic, or buy a ticket including BBQ, and enjoy a glorious summer evening with the finest entertainment.
