Lady Bracknell reflects on an extraordinary sequence of events following on from The Importance of Being Earnest
The play traces the story of Lady Bracknell, one of the greatest comedy creations in the English Theatre. As the curtain rises we hear off stage, the final moments of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, when Jack Worthing discovers every obstacle has been removed from marriage to his beloved Gwendolen. Or so he believes. Lady Bracknell enters in a fluster and we then discover why.
Doust’s comedy has been written for a man to play Lady Bracknell, thus further emphasising the ‘pantomime dame’ elements of the character’s snobbery and obsession with social standing.
Director Gregory Hayman says: “The play will provide an hilarious evening’s entertainment for lovers of Wilde’s original play and those who are new to it.”
Tickets £7.50 including refreshment.

Conflict and Collaboration
CELEBRATING 100 YEARS
Cantamus are Voting for Women at their next concert ‘Conflict and Collaboration’. Celebrating beautiful, but regrettably ignored, music from the 17th century to just before WWI.
They will perform ‘Songs of Sunrise’ by the feisty Dame Ethel Smyth, her stirring March of the Women, united with its fellows ‘Laggard Dawn’ and ‘1910’; the ‘Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary’ by an Italian contemporary of Sir Christopher Wren – Isabella Leonarda (1620-1704); and delightful Edwardian miniatures by Amy Beach and Emily Tallmadge.
The concert also features two collaborative works written by Fauré (of ‘Requiem’ fame) and Messager (once famous in the UK for his operettas ‘Monsieur Beaucaire’ and ‘Véronique’) – a Mass for the fishing village of Villerville in Normandy, and a wicked send-up of Wagner’s Ring Cycle as a set of brisk piano-duet Quadrilles.
