Additional Info: Oscar Wilde's brilliant and witty comedy of manners which has delighted millions in countless productions since its first performance in London in 1895. It is celebrated, not only for the lighthearted ingenuity of the plot, but for its inspired dialogue with sparkling witticisms which are among the most quoted in the English language. This is our first production of 2017 and was the first play ever performed at the newly opened Church Hill theatre in 1965 (the SCDA cast included some EPT members). From the play's carefree beginnings in Algernon Moncrieff's London flat to its hilarious denouement in the drawing room of Jack Worthing's country manor, this comic masterpiece keeps audiences breathlessly anticipating a new bon mot or fresh twist of plot.
