The Importance of Being Earnest, by the master of comedy Oscar Wilde, is at the Cambridge Arts Theatre from Monday 9 to Saturday 14 April.

Prepare to take a welcome turn with Wilde’s much-loved Algernon, Jack, Gwendolen and Cecily, as town and country clash in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, perambulators and capacious handbags.

Starring national treasure Gwen Taylor (Coronation Street, Duty Free, Barbara) as the formidable Lady Bracknell, Downton Abbey favourite Thomas Howes as Algernon, West End star Peter Sandys-Clarke as Jack and the delightful Susan Penhaligon (Upstairs Downstaors, Bergerac) as the hapless Miss Prism.

Tickets, £19 to £39, are available online.
