DOT Productions are back and proud to present one of the funniest plays in the English language – ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ and we could all do with a little socially distanced light relief!
Oscar Wilde billed his play as ‘a trivial comedy for serious people’, and its witty dialogue and fabulous characters are sure to delight both serious and flippant audiences alike.
‘In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing.’
– Gwendolyn, Act III
Six versatile actors and DOT Productions’ renowned style bring this much loved masterpiece to you in all its satirical glory.
Two bachelors; the seemingly responsible John Worthing J.P, and the charming and frivolous Algernon Moncrieff; both lead double lives in order to court Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. This leads to a riotous comedy of mistaken identities, and encounters with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
This is an outdoor production so please bring your own chairs or floor cushions. We will be seating you in social bubbles / households as per government guidelines so please take this into consideration when booking your tickets.
If you need to book for more than one bubble please make these as separate bookings so that we can plan socially distanced seating accordingly.
The production runs at approximately 2hrs including an interval but to avoid congestion during the interval we encourage the use of the toilets at any time during the performance.
