Wilde's Earnest Visits The RedgraveDate: 14 September 2011
Oscar Wildeís brightest and most enduring comedy of manners returns to Bristol, with Floor to CeilingísThe Importance of Being Earnest at The Redgrave Theatre, Clifton 29 September to 8 October
Jack loves Gwendolen but Gwendolen loves Earnest. Earnest loves Cecily but Cecily loves Algernon. In this horrible entanglement between town and country, can it possible end happily?
Mistaken identities, double standards and confusion abound in this witty satire from one of Irelandís greatest writers. And at the centre of it all, possibly the most famous handbag in literary history. Itís teacakes-and-English-muffins at dawn as both Jack and Algy learn the Importance of Being Earnest.
Floor To Ceiling is a creative partnership based in the South West between Bristol Old Vic Theatre School Graduates Monty Till and Hannah Drake, managed through Monty Till Productions. Together they aim to produce theatre by, with, and for the communities in and around Bristol. Engaging with new writing and old, traditional theatre spaces and more unusual locations, established actors and recent graduates, Floor to Ceilingís work is united by its interest in the human condition; however simple, sentimental or absurd.
