THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

13 – 29 JUNE 2013

The Importance of Being Earnest

 “A beautiful and most charming evening’s entertainment”
The Public Reviews

“Unmissable”
Guildford Magazine

Our first non-Shakespeare show was Oscar Wilde’s sublime comedy of manners, The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Anna Ledwich.

Written in 1888, it was staged around the bandstand in Guildford’s Castle Gardens which was also constructed in 1888.

Audiences loved the quick-fire repartee of Algy and co, almost as much as the pigeons enjoyed the cucumber sandwiches on the prop table!
