To Hell in a Handbag

written and performed by Helen Norton and Jonathan White

Anyone who lives within their means suffers from lack of imagination” (Oscar Wilde)

While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from 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, false identity… and money. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic.
