A PRODUCTION of the Oscar Wilde classic The Importance of Being Earnest is being staged at Alvechurch Village Hall.

Performances of the show will take place at 7.30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (April 25, 26 and 27).

The play centres around Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, who must deal with Lady Bracknell as they court their sweethearts Gwendolen and Cecily.

Meanwhile, both women seem to think they are engaged to someone named Ernest.

Sarah Taylor is from Alvechurch Dramatic Society which is putting on the production.

She said: "Featuring all of Wilde’s famous wit, farcical comedy and sparkling dialogue – plus some cucumber sandwiches and a very well known handbag – this is a show that has deservedly won its place among the classics."

Tickets, which are £6 (£5 concessions), are available from Alvechurch Post Office, The Joshua Tree, or by calling 0121 447 7071.
