While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity and money. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic. ★★★★★ “beautifully written and acted with exquisite comic timing” Mail on Sunday (Click HERE to read full review) “the dialogue, delivered with impeccable timing and modulation, is light, wicked, artful… a hoot of an instant classic” The Observer (Click HERE to read full review) ★★★★ “Helen Norton and Jonathan White, have pulled off a coup with their enchanting visit to the outer rim of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest… packs extraordinary amounts of plot and top notch gags into a compact package” The Irish Times ★★★★ “In keeping with the exceptional standard of their script, the performances given are outstanding” EdinburghGuide.com (Click HERE to read the full review) “Wickedly, side-splittingly funny, in a sophisticated, witty and elegant way. A joyous romp not to be missed, a worthy homage to its master and progenitor” Sunday Independent “one of those unique events – an atmospheric piece which is a complete package” Meg.ie WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY HELEN NORTON AND JONATHAN WHITE DIRECTED BY CONOR HANRATTY
