The Importance of Being Earnest (Open Air Theatre)



The Importance of Being Earnest (Open Air Theatre) From the creators of The HandleBards comes a fantastically wild(e) new production, ripping up the rule book and celebrating silliness. With Slapstick Picnic, you can have your cake and eat it!

From the creators of The HandleBards: The Slapstick Picnic would like to cordially invite you to its inaugural summer tea party, where marvellous feats of performance and culinary capers await. Over tea and cucumber sandwiches, we ask that you prepare to witness the impossible - the entirety of Oscar Wilde’s classic play of manners, affairs and handbags being performed by just two rather dashing entertainers.

As we are expecting a rather voluminous crowd in the outdoors, we do request that you wear attire suitable for the meteorological conditions, and you are most welcome to bring your own seating or picnic blankets. It shall be an extraordinary family gathering, and we should not consider it complete without your presence.
