Titchfield Festival Theatre presents The Importance Of Being Earnest for a ten-day run at the main theatre on St Margarets Lane.

Described as a trivial comedy for serious people, Oscar Wilde’s satirical look at late Victorian society and its approach to institutions like marriage is considered to be his magnum opus.

In the play, two Victorian gentlemen both use the name of Ernest behind the backs of their families and friends.

But when they both fall in love with women using that name, mistaken identities and comedy result, including a famous moment involving a handbag.

The Importance Of Being Earnest shows at Titchfield Festival Theatre, Titchfield from October 8-18, at 7.30pm, tickets cost £8-£11. Call 01329 556156 for details.
