The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

20th August 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 21st August 2021 @ 6:30 pm

£6 – £90

Oscar Wilde’s most popular play offers farcical comedy with witty dialogue, as it pokes fun at the social conventions of late-Victorian high society. An enjoyable evening of manners, morals, and mayhem – and something about a handbag…  (Abridged, approx. 90 mins).

Open-air production – bring your own seating/blanket and picnic! …. why not dress for the occasion in 1890s style?!

£1 from every ticket sale will go to the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (Registered Charity Number: 1103563) and in particular the Dragonfly Unit at Carlton Court. The Dragonfly Unit is an adolescent psychiatric unit, primarily for children and young people with complex mental health needs from the Norfolk and Suffolk area.

Performances take place at The Plantation Garden, 4 Earlham Road, Norwich, NR2 3DB – please go to their website for information on accessibility and parking – – sorry no parking on site.

Open-air performance poor weather policy

The performance will continue in light to medium rain – please bring umbrellas/waterproofs. In the event of heavy/torrential rain, the performance will be stopped and continued after the downpour.  If the heavy rain is persistent the company may stop the performance entirely. The performance will be stopped if conditions become unsafe, e.g. flooding of performance space or lightning storm.

If the performance is cancelled before it begins tickets will be transferred to a future available performance or refunded if alternative performances are not suitable.  If the performance is stopped after 45 minutes tickets will not be refunded but can be transferred to another performance where available.

If the decision is made to cancel a performance before it begins Greasepaint Theatre Company will make every reasonable effort to contact ticket holders in advance as time permits.  Please check for information.
