Slapstick Picnic presents – The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde
Presented by Slapstick Picnic
Thursday 6th August 2020
6.30pm (gates open at 5.30pm)

The Slapstick Picnic would like to cordially invite you to its inaugural summer tea party, where marvellous feats of performance and culinary capers await. Over tea and cucumber sandwiches, we ask that you prepare to witness the impossible – the entirety of Oscar Wilde’s classic play of manners, affairs and handbags being performed by just two rather dashing entertainers.

As we are expecting a rather voluminous crowd in the outdoors, we do request that you bear your own seats, picnic blankets and filled hampers to the proceedings, and wear attire suitable for the eteorological conditions. It shall be an extraordinary family gathering, and we should not consider it complete without your presence.

From the creators of The HandleBards comes a fantastically wild(e) new production, ripping up the rule book and celebrating silliness. With Slapstick Picnic, you can have your cake and eat it.

Disabled parking and toilets are available. Please note that there are a few steps in some places, with gravel paths as well as grass walking areas.

Please bring low back seats or rugs/blankets as seating is not provided at this event.
