About

Watch the Changeling Theatre's Open Air Tour and their production of The Importance of Being Ernest this Summer, with a choice of venues around Maidstone.

The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

To be successful in love is to be called Ernest. Or so it is in Oscar Wilde's satirical masterpiece following the story of two eligible bachelors, Jack and Algy.

In love with two women who conveniently claim to only love men named Ernest, Jack and Algy create alter egos called Ernest to win their hearts.
But it's a struggle to keep up with their own stories and they quickly become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure. The frankly bonkers plot of this play mocks Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved and ludicrous characters to be found on the modern stage.

Changeling Theatre is best known for their hugely successful Summer open air tours and have staged Shakespeare's most popular plays in locations ranging from castles to beaches to football stadiums. Their 2022 tour features two plays: Shakespeare's Othello and Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.
