The Importance Of Being Earnest In York
Andrew Liddle, Features Writer
The Importance Of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde’s wonderfully witty and deliciously decadent comedy of manners, errors and romance, perambulators, handbags and nominative determinism, is coming next week to York Theatre Royal. The acclaimed Original Theatre Company brings a stellar cast to perform the perennial favourite, including Gwen Taylor (Coronation Street, Duty Free and Barbara), Downton Abbey favourite Thomas Howes, West End star Peter Sandys-Clarke and the ever-green Susan Penhaligon (Bouquet of Barbed Wire and A Fine Romance).

With such a cast, directed by Alastair Whatley, playing the much-loved characters, Algernon, Jack, Gwendolen and Cecily, not to mention the formidable Lady Bracknell and hapless Miss Prism, this classic revival has been gaining rave reviews since the tour began in early February and is clearly not to be missed.

The Importance Of Being Earnest is at the York Theatre Royal from 17th to 21st April, nightly at 7.30pm, matinees 2pm Thursday & 2.30pm Saturday.
