The Importance of Being Earnest
At Berkley Castle
By Split Second Productions
Refreshing, colourful and hilarious. Split Second Productions have produced a new take on Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ Jack Coleby and Alex Hooper captivate the room with comical costume changes and witty one-liners.
Re-vamped into a two-man show the pair cleverly re-enact the classic in the great hall at Berkley Castle.
The intelligent use of space and set pieces seems natural in the traditional setting, helping the Victorian era come alive.
The play itself is probably more relevant today than ever, with everyone caught up in the rush of life, being someone they want to be rather than who they are.
I highly recommend a night out to watch this wry nod to an old classic full of stereotypical roles being turned of their heads.
