The Importance of Beng Earnest

Earnest montage Screenshot (28) ad0501h
Turns out that I knew the pun but not the play.
Of course it’s ridiculous (Cecily Cardew falling for someone and getting engaged in her own mind before she’d met her “Ernest”), and the posh people are very off-putting.
But some of the lines will live forever and it’s nice to see in a local theatre delivered with local enthusiasm.
Excellent costumes (John Gill), lace, peacock feathers – and eyebrows (Courtney Kelham-Giddy).
(For a proper review, see this by Kev Castle.)
