The Importance of Being Earnest
@Comrie Croft

Slapstick Picnic would like to cordially invite you to its inaugural summer tea party, where marvellous feats of performance and culinary capers await. Over tea and cucumber sandwiches, we ask that you prepare to witness the impossible - the entirety of Oscar Wilde’s classic play of manners, affairs and handbags being performed by just two rather dashing entertainers. From the creators of The HandleBards comes a fantastically wild(e) new production, ripping up the recipe book and celebrating silliness. With Slapstick Picnic, you can have your cake and eat it.

Notes on Performance:

  • Doors open at 2pm, performance beings at 3pm so bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

  • Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low-level accessories are welcome.

  • In case of rain, please don't bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching, so please wear these instead.
