Part of our Palace at the Castle series, taking place in Newark Castle grounds. Chapterhouse Theatre Company is proud to present Oscar Wilde’s finest and best-loved romantic comedy. With a cast of unforgettably larger than life characters, the delightful Cecily, the roguish Algernon and the formidable Lady Bracknell are sure to keep you wildly entertained! Picnic with friends and family and enjoy this exquisite new production of Wilde’s hilarious tale of doubles lives and mistaken identities presented in full period costume. Join us at some of the UK and Ireland’s most stunning open-air venues for a wonderful evening of theatre under the stars. ‘Don’t miss…the perfect evening’ The Daily Express "Worth catching them whatever the show, wherever they go" Northern Echo "What Chapterhouse does is theatre at the coalface, carried by the power of acting… and they do it with distinction" The Stage.
