Entry is just $20 and audiences are welcome to B.Y.O drinks and nibbles. 

About the play - Oscar Wilde’s delightfully naughty helter-skelter ride of mistaken identities, secret engagements, and entangled lovers. A satire of Victorian London’s social hypocrisy as delicious as the bread & butter and cucumber sandwiches!

“In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity is the vital thing” - Gwendolen Fairfax (ACT III)

First performed on the 14th February 1895 at the St James Theatre London, Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece of the aesthetic movement, the most elegant of comedies of manners, is a rapid fire shelling of ‘Victorian Earnestness’, as ‘laughably pretentious at its best’, and ‘viciously hypocritical at its worst’.

CAST: Peter Ross, Jessi Le Brocq, Ben Simpson, Natacha Curnow, Ethan Faulks, Samantha Brice, Emelia Rixon & Liam Higham.

DIRECTOR: Andrew Sharp
RUN TIME: 150 Minutes including invterval.
