Bishop Stopfords would like to invite you to step back in time, to see the wonderful production of ‘The Importance of being Earnest’ a piece performed by our 6th form students for their A Level exam that received rapturous applause, that we felt it would be a travesty to not bring it to our main stage and to enable all that wished to, to see it. Tickets can be purchased from Miss Dorrington at the minimal cost of £2 or £1 (concessions) concessions are students or OAP’s.
The Importance of Being Earnest by the master of comedy Oscar Wilde visits Bishop Stopfords in this wonderfully witty, deliciously decadent, and classic revival from 6th form students and Miss Dorrington directing.
Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Lady Bracknell, of the respectability of his parents and past. For Jack, however, this is not as easy as it sounds, having started life abandoned in a handbag at Victoria station.
Prepare to take a welcome turn with Wilde’s much-loved Algernon, Jack, Gwendolen and Cecily, as town and country clash in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, perambulators and capacious handbags.
Starring soon to be national treasure of screen and stage Christie Fewry as the formidable Lady Bracknell, soon to be West End favourite Princewill Awujo as Algernon, soon to be Film Star Romaine Powell as Jack and the delightful Atinuke Alabi (coming soon to a screen near you) as the hapless Miss Prism. The sweet and innocent Cynthia Lawson as Cecily. The seductive Gwendoline is being played by Ella Asante. Also with our talented actors playing multirole to show the different roles required.
Limited amount of seats available be quick so you are not disappointed!
