"I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being really good all the time. That would be hypocrisy."

"The Perfect Play" ~ Stephen Fry

"Sheer Joy" ~ Frank McGuinness

We're excited to announce Oscar Wilde will take to the Bardic stage for the first time with our winter production of "The Importance of Being Earnest".

Featuring a stellar local cast and an award-winning design team, this wickedly funny chocolate-box of a comedy is full of thrills, frills and frivolity. It is sure to make the perfect early festive night out.

"Mean Girls" meets "Succession" meets "Downton Abbey" in arguably the greatest satire written for the stage. Follow the doomed doubled lives of the eternal hedonist Algernon, his neurotic pal Jack; and their absurd efforts to woo the glamorous & obsessive frenemies Gwendolen Fairfax & Cecily Cardew.

Featuring the iconic & formidable matriarch Lady Bracknell, this play is replete with instantly recognisable one-liners that could as easily apply to the social media age as they do to the fin de siècle self-indulgence of Victorian high society.

We can't wait to welcome you to the Bardic Theatre in November to see for yourselves, so make sure to book your seats
