What is currently on at Mercury Theatre (V37)

The Importance of Being Earnest

T0
Classic turn-of-the-century comedy of social manners. A very complicated plot that includes the famous "A Handbag!" line .. Jack Worthing is in love with Gwendolen Fairfax, daughter of the redoubtable Lady Bracknell, and cousin of his friend Algernon. They cannot wed until the mystery of his parentage (he was found in a handbag on Victoria Station) is resolved. Algy discovers that Jack has a pretty young ward, Cecily, living at the Manor and visits her pretending to be Jack's fictitious (and wicked) brother Ernest.
Author Oscar Wilde

Pretentious mess-up of a great play. Sound system in theatre not fit for purpose. It is all in the dialogue and it was hardly audible.
