Farce coming to Palace Theatre stage

Posted onPosted on 25th Apr

The very British farce The Importance of Being…Earnest? will be at the Palace Theatre, Mansfield, on Thursday, 30th May.

It is a madcap, interactive adaptation of the Oscar Wilde classic.  Say It Again, Sorry?’s interpretation is framed within a production that goes horribly, horribly wrong.

Described as a genuine slapstick embodiment of the show must go on, audience members are invited (with their consent) to fill principle roles where needed as an increasing number of actors become indisposed, leading to an entirely unique, unpredictable and hilarious form of audience participation and whirlwind theatrical adventure. Think props going awry, sound disappearing, reading from a script – provided by an onstage printer – and wondering whether the cast will ever reach the end of the script, and you’ve got an idea of how the evening will go.

Say it Again, Sorry? bring Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest crashing into the 21st Century with their adaptation, peppered with pop-culture references such as the Spice Girls, Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing and Harry Potter – allegedly due to some dodgy script ‘misprints’!
