“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from lack of imagination” – Oscar Wilde
While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity…and money. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic.
Written and performed by Helen Norton and Jonathan White
Director Conor Hanratty
Set Designer Maree Kearns
Costume Designer Saileóg O’Halloran
Running time: 1 hour (no interval)
