Classic play performed by just two entertainers

Slapstick Picnic would like to cordially invite you to Batsford Arboretum to its inaugural summer tea party, where marvellous feats of performance and culinary capers await.

Over tea and cucumber sandwiches, you are asked to witness the impossible - the entirety of Oscar Wilde's classic play of manners, affairs and handbags - The Importance of Being Earnest - being performed by just two rather dashing entertainers on Tuesday, September 7.

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.

This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair to sit on (the audience area is on tarmac), a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather! Doors open at 6pm and the show runs from 7pm to 9pm.

Tickets cost £18 for adults and £11 for 10-17 year olds (under 10 tickets are free, but must be accompanied by a paying adult).

To book, visit www.tickettailor.com  (please note, tickets aren't available from Batsford).
