by Oscar Wilde
This is a witty and laugh out loud comedy of mistaken identities, confusion and cucumber sandwiches. On the surface it is a light, fluffy jibe at the nonsensicalness of the English upper class at the turn of the 19th century. At a deeper level, it is also a profound plea for sincerity and caring in the face of adversity.
The production sets out to examine these themes from the perspective of the migrant and the outsider. Embracing wild wit, deft humour, role swapping and banter with the audience. 2 actors unfurl a riot of love, confusion and high jinks.
