“The truth is rarely pure and never simple.”

To be successful in love is to be called Ernest. Or so it is in Oscar Wilde’s satirical masterpiece following the story of two eligible bachelors, Jack and Algy.

In love with two women who conveniently claim to only love men named Ernest, Jack and Algy create alter egos called Ernest to win their hearts.

But it’s a struggle to keep up with their own stories and they quickly become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure. The frankly bonkers plot of this play mocks Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved and ludicrous characters to be found on the modern stage.

And if that’s not sold it to you, there’s always that line about the handbag.

Bring a chair or rug and a picnic and enjoy this performance under the night sky of Romney Marsh.

History

The Old School in New Romney forms an important part of the Town’s history, culture and continued social activity. First opened In 1821, it has educated many generations of local children. After its closure, around 1967 the building, left empty, fell into a state of disrepair. Thanks to the formation of New Romney Old School Trust in 1993, fund raising activity and a grant from the National Lottery the building was restored and re-opened in 2000. Today’s Old School remains an important part of the local community, hosting an active schedule of events, classes, clubs, etc. It also houses the Town’s Museum providing an interesting insight into the history of this fascinating area. The building is run and maintained by a small group of Trustees, who also look after the garden with the help of community minded volunteers. This unique building is available for hire should you want to organize an event, class, sale, party, reception, lesson or meeting.
