Fresh from a sell-out run in Berlin comes this lively reimagining of Oscar Wilde’s sardonic comedy. Introducing a dash of rebellious German counterculture to the proceedings, audiences will join Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff as they down shots at the bar, before being transported into the German countryside to meet dear little Cecily Cardew and her admirable governess Miss Prism. One should expect frivolous antics, shameless high jinks, and plenty of muffins. Emerging international theatre company Shakespeare: Reloaded are best known for performing classic plays with a bold, contemporary edge. This marks their UK debut.
