The Pantaloons present The Importance of Being Earnest

Everybody loves Ernest. In fact, Cecily and Gwendolen are both engaged to Ernest. The only trouble is, he doesn’t exist. Or does he…?

Best friends Jack and Algy have both created alter-egos to win the affections of their beloveds; but when will they stop being Ernest and start being, well, earnest?

Wilde’s comic masterpiece gets The Pantaloons treatment in their anarchic take on the classic comedy of manners. This energetic and musical production from the critically-acclaimed company infuses Wilde’s witty words with snappy new songs and frantically funny physical theatre to give this perennially popular play a hilarious contemporary twist!

Set in the magical grounds of Hedingham Castle for a truly enchanting evening. Light refreshments will be available from our outdoor bar, picnics also welcome. Please bring a blanket or low seating. Suitable for all ages.

Gates open at 6pm for a 7pm start. Duration: 1hr 50mins 

“Wonderfully inventive … catching this touring show will feel like putting on a forgotten pair of slippers and finding them even more comfy than you recall.” (Rotherham Advertiser)
