Oscar Wilde’s greatest comedy

A trivial comedy for serious people Jack wants to marry Gwendolen, but there are two obstacles: her mother who is a ‘Gorgon’ … and Gwendolen’s ideal ‘to love someone of the name of Ernest’ …
Meanwhile the discovery that Jack has ‘an excessively pretty ward, who is only
just eighteen’ gives Algy the perfect opportunity for some Bunburying at Jack’s place in the country!
These are the ingredients for Oscar Wilde’s most witty confection: lost babies, lost luggage, lost relations – all enhanced by copious amounts of cake, muffins and cucumber sandwiches.
Join the Cygnet Company for a little summer warmth in the depths of winter.
‘A beacon of creativity in these dark times’
