Theatre: The Importance of Being Earnest

Over tea and cucumber sandwiches, we ask that you prepare to witness the impossible - the entirety of Oscar Wilde’s classic play of manners, affairs and handbags being performed by just two rather dashing entertainers.

From the creators of The HandleBards comes a fantastically wild(e) new production, ripping up the recipe book and celebrating silliness. With Slapstick Picnic, you can have your cake and eat it.

This is an outdoor production - please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to tuck into, and dress for the weather! Arrive for picnics from 6pm; show starts at 6.30pm.

What is Pay What You Decide?

PWYD is a pricing strategy designed to encourage new audiences to try new work. It requires audiences to book in advance, but voluntarily pay an amount determined by them after the show, based on their experience.

With PWYD, customers can book their place in advance then decide after the show what they think it is worth – therefore removing the risk of paying for something they might not enjoy.

PWYD tackles both affordability and risk, two of the greatest barriers to people attending new work.
