Theatre Thursdays – The Importance of being Ernest

Date: 11/07/2024

7pm - 9pm

Join us for Theatre Thursdays…

The Pantaloons present The Importance of being Ernest

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!

Bring your own blankets, cushions, and camping-chairs and join us on our outdoor adventure at one of the most beautiful and historic landmarks in the UK. Come prepared for the weather – the performance will continue come rain come shine!

Further event information will be sent prior to the performance from Highcliffe Castle.

Prevented from hatching her eggs at the farm, foolish Jemima goes in search of a nesting place in the forest and soon she meets a charming ‘gentleman’ who offers her the perfect nesting place in his wood-shed.

But why is his wood-shed full of feathers and why is he asking her to collect the herbs for roast duck?

Back at the farm, the Collie-dog, Kep, puts two and two together, but will he be in time to rescue Jemima from her fate?
