The Importance of Being Earnest

This year’s Taunton Thespians Summer Tour is Oscar Wilde’s glorious comedy The Importance of Being Earnest at 10 open air venues throughout the county during mid July.

“A trivial comedy for serious people” and packed it full of wit and wordplay of the finest kind. It’s very much a play of its time and place, late Victorian England, where the idle rich can be truly idle.

Whilst the two leading characters (Algernon and Jack) are men, in common with all drama of the time, in this play Wilde created two very strong female leading roles in Gwendolen and Cecily. The ladies are by no stretch of the imagination the weaker sex in this play – and that’s before we talk about Lady Bracknell. Everyone knows her line, usually intoned in imitation of Edith Evans: “A hand-bag?”, though few have actually seen it!

Bring friends, picnic and chairs and join us from 6pm, performance starts 7.30pm and the ‘open’ tickets may be used at any venue. Full venue list and tickets at www.tauntonthespians.org.uk
