Ladies of Importance
A Lady of Letters from Talking Heads by Alan Bennett.
Lady Bracknell’s Return by Peter Harrison
8th - 15th October 2022
An evening of two one-act plays.
A Lady of Letters.Spinster Irene puts pen to paper to complain
about the many, many wrongs she sees around her. However, she ends up
on the wrong side of the law when she misreads completely the
situation of the family living in the house opposite. A Lady of
Letters was recently performed for TV by Imelda Staunton.
Lady Bracknell's Return
The aristocratic Lady Bracknell is of course the famous creation of
Oscar Wilde in his comedy The Importance of Being Earnest. Now the
fearsome Lady Bracknell has been resurrected for the first time in a
one-act tribute drama. "This quirky story full of charm, wit and
substance, dominated by the appearance of the ever-powerful and
formidable Lady B., creates the perfect vehicle to pay homage to the
late great Oscar Wilde with a modern audience in mind."
