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."
