AN AMATEUR dramatics' theatre is putting on an Oscar Wilde production this month which satirises Victorian society.

The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Daniel Cox, is being staged at the Edward Alderton Theatre in Brampton Road, Bexleyheath, from Saturday until next Saturday . Performances start at 8 and there will be no performance on Sunday. The play's humour derives from characters maintaining fictitious identities to escape unwelcome social obligations.

Jack Worthing invents a brother to inject some excitement into his life and as an excuse to leave his dull country life behind to pursue the object of his desire.

But across town another man takes the same name when visiting Worthing's young ward Cecily.

Box office: 0208 301 5584 or visit www.edwardalderton.org.
