While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from Oscar Wilde’s comic masterpiece, ‘The Importance Of Being Earnest’, are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, embezzlement and false identity. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic. If you love Wilde – and who doesn’t? – you’ll love this! ‘To Hell In A Handbag’ comes to the JHISS after a highly successful Edinburgh Fringe run and English tour in 2018.

‘To Hell in a Handbag is a delight – beautifully written and acted with exquisite comic timing.’ The Mail On Sunday

‘Wickedly, side-splittingly funny… a joyous romp not to be missed.’ Sunday Independent
