MAY

   
Fri 2nd 7.30pm
The Importance of Being Earnest
A Trivial Play For Serious People
This, the most popular and razor witted of Oscar Wilde’s social comedies, is a brilliant demonstration of the dramatic diamond cutter’s art. Mappa Mundi’s brand new and perfectly honed production allows a modern audience to be dazzled by that brilliance.
Jack and Algy are in love with Gwendolen and Cecily, who both believe themselves to be in love with the non-existent Ernest. Add a handbag, an absent minded nanny and the redoubtable Lady Bracknell into the wonderful lunacy and symmetry of the plot and you have the ultimate satirical farce. Wilde’s sparkling one-liners shine through to skewer the manners and morals of the pretentious and those to the manor born.
Audiences of all ages can look forward to a high quality and unique rendition of this, the most dazzling of comedies, from Mappa Mundi, the highly acclaimed theatre company responsible for Moll Flanders (2007) & Canterbury Tales (2006). At The Borough Theatre
