Starring national treasure Gwen Taylor (Coronation Street, Duty Free and Barbara) as the formidable Lady BracknellDownton Abbey favourite Thomas Howes as Algernon, West End star Peter Sandys-Clarke as Jack and the delightful Susan Penhaligon (Bouquet of Barbed Wire and A Fine Romance) as the hapless Miss Prism, Wilde’s most famous and entertaining play is set to delight. 

Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin, the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Lady Bracknell, of the respectability of his parents and his past. Prepare to take a welcome turn with Wilde’s much-loved Algernon, Jack, Gwendolen and Cecily, as town and country clash in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, perambulators and capacious handbags.
