The Importance of Being Earnest

Tuesday 7 September 2021

7.00pm - 9.00pm

Slapstick Picnic would like to cordially invite you to its inaugural summer tea party, where marvellous feats of performance and culinary capers await. Over tea and cucumber sandwiches, we ask that you prepare to witness the impossible - the entirety of Oscar Wilde’s classic play of manners, affairs and handbags being performed by just two rather dashing entertainers.

From the creators of The HandleBards comes a fantastically wild(e) new production, ripping up the recipe book and celebrating silliness. With Slapstick Picnic, you can have your cake and eat it.

This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair to sit on (the audience area is on tarmac), a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather! Doors open at 6pm.

Tickets cost £18 for adults and £11 for 10-17 year olds (under 10 tickets are free, but must be accompanied by a paying adult).

To book, visit (please note, tickets aren't available from Batsford).
