Miracle Theatre - St Ives

Miracle Theatre - The Importance Of Being Earnest

The wonderful Miracle Theatre are back in St Ives tomorrow with their latest production - The Importance Of Being Earnest.

Miracle are regular visitors to St Ives and have built up a fine reputation - if you haven't seen them before don't miss this !

An outdoor performance in the beautiful setting of Tregenna Castle - right outside the hotel on the front lawn.   Food and drink will be available in the hotel before, during and after the show.

Oscar Wilde’s ‘trivial comedy for serious people’ is a masterpiece of sharp wit and preposterous plotting. Such ‘beautiful nonsense’ cries out for the sort of surreal treatment that has become Miracle’s hallmark.

Set in the year 1912, with the Titanic sinking, mass production just beginning on the Morris Oxford and the Turkey Trot causing outrage across the dance floors of polite society, this tale of the strange contents of a handbag found at Victoria station has been subtly adapted to extract every drip of humour and contemporary relevance.

In this high energy production Miracle adds an extra dimension to ‘the funniest play ever written’.

Tickets are available on the gate or in advance from Hall For Cornwall Box Office:
01872 262 466
