The Importance of Being Earnest
at The Congress Theatre Eastbourne
Wednesday 25th April 2018
£39.00 All seats
Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Lady Bracknell, of the respectability of his parents and his past. For Jack, however, this is not as easy as it sounds, having started life abandoned in a handbag at Victoria station. Prepare to take a welcome turn with Wilde’s much-loved Algernon, Jack, Gwendolen and Cecily, as town and country clash in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, perambulators and capacious handbags. Gwen Taylor stars as Lady Bracknell and Susan Penhaligon as Miss Prism. There will be time to find lunch in Eastbourne prior to the 2.30pm performance. If you would rather visit Eastbourne and not see the play, seats are available at a price of £20.00.
