Description

Slapstick Picnic would like to cordially invite you to its summer tea party, where marvellous feats of performance and culinary capers await. Over tea and cucumber sandwiches, we ask that you prepare to witness the impossible – the entirety of Oscar Wilde's classic play of manners, affairs and handbags being performed by just two rather dashing entertainers.  From the creators of The HandleBards, comes a fantastically wild(e) new production, ripping up the recipe book and celebrating silliness. With Slapstick Picnic, you can have your cake and eat it.

The cast are expert slapstick comedians, and it is a pleasure to watch both Green and Ross-Fawcett be the life of the tea party.
