'The Importance of Being Earnest'- Oscar Wilde's best loved and most regularly performed comedy is to be given a classy up-date from Cheshire- based Consensus Theatre, when it arrives at Tarvin Community Centre on Saturday 25th April 2015.

Oscar Wilde

The innovative group have opted to set the play in the vibrant 1950s ."The 50s were about fun and that's what we're planning to create on stage" remarked Phillip Wade founder member of the theatre group.
"We don't have a director as such ,we all take responsibility and offer suggestions ,if they don't work we change them. It's a very refreshing way of working — and one which really brings out the best in us all as actors and in the characters themselves" says Sebastian Farrell, another founder member of the group.
The small group of experienced and well-seasoned actors from across the region will be performing Wilde's play at various venues over the next 9 months, concluding with a one night's performance at the Brindley in June 2015.
So, curtain up 7.30 @ Tarvin Community Centre, Saturday 25th April 2015.
Tickets £10. Available@ Tarvin Post Office or call 01829 74086800 or visit
