The Importance of Being Earnest (Makers)

The Edinburgh Makars take on Oscar Wilde’s “trivial comedy for serious people”.

Hay Fever (EGTG)
Assembly Roxy, 2 Roxburgh Place, EH8 9SU

Meet the wealthy, self-obsessed and eccentric Bliss family; grande dame of the stage and mother Judith, novelist and father David, and their two children Sorel and Simon. Each has invited a guest to spend the weekend at their country house in rural England – and each has neglected to tell the others. Friction and hilarity ensue in Noel Coward’s classic comedy.

Two friends, both in failing marriages, share a flat. One is disorganised and messy – the other wants to restore order in his own life and for his friend.
