“It is a terrible thing for a man to find out suddenly that all his life he has been speaking nothing but the truth”

This summer FRED brings Oscar Wilde’s greatest comedy to the stage in a sparkling new production.

Mr Worthing lives a double life—in town he is Ernest, in the country Jack. In the country he lives a sober life with his ward, Cecily, and her governess, Miss Prism. In town he is free to pursue Gwendolen Fairfax, the object of his desires, and be friends with Algernon, her cousin.
Algernon has invented the permanent invalid Bunbury, whom he uses as an excuse to visit Jack’s country home where he presents himself as Jack’s brother Ernest … just as Jack arrives home to announce the death of his imaginary brother.
The double lives of Jack and Algy catch up with them as they each pursue the woman they want to spend the rest of their lives with.

Full cast and creative team credits are listed on FRED’s web site: www.fred-theatre.co.uk.

Running time: approximately 2 1/2 hours, including intervals.
