The Bleadon Players will perform one of the cleverest comedies by one of the greatest writers in the English language.

The Importance Of Being Earnest follows the double lives of Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, two charming bachelors who invent circumstances to allow them to escape the strict Victorian confines of family, duty and social responsibility.

However, two men struggle to keep up with their own fabrications and lies and are soon entangled in a tale of deception and misadventure.

All money made from ticket sales will be split between the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research in producer and director Chris Bartrop-Clist’s memory.

Oscar Wilde’s The Importance Of Being Earnest will be performed at the Coronation Hall, in Coronation Road, from today (Thursday) until Saturday at 7.30pm each night.

Tickets, priced £8, are available from the post office, on the door or from
