To Hell In A Handbag

The Secret Lives of Canon Chasuble and Miss Prism

While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from The Importance of being Earnest are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private?

This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity and money. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic.

★★★★ “Helen Norton and Jonathan White, have pulled off a coup with their enchanting visit to the outer rim of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest… packs extraordinary amounts of plot and top notch gags into a compact package” The Irish Times

“Wickedly, side-splittingly funny, in a sophisticated, witty and elegant way. A joyous romp not to be missed, a worthy homage to its master and progenitor” Sunday Independent

“one of those unique events – an atmospheric piece which is a complete package”
