Thursday 17 March: 7.30pm
A trivial comedy for serious people.
Mistaken identity and romance collide with cucumber sandwiches and a handbag in Oscar Wilde’s much-loved comedy of manners.
Jack loves Gwendolen. Algernon loves Cecily; though both of them are engaged to the roguish Ernest - much to the disapproval of the formidable Lady Bracknell. Unfortunately, Ernest doesn’t actually exist, and when his true identity is revealed being earnest takes on a whole new meaning.
Following sell-out runs of their previous productions, The Twelve Pound Look and A Doll’s House, HangFire embark on their first national tour with a revival of their fast-paced and hilarious adaptation of Wilde’s famous comic masterpiece.
