To Hell in a Handbag

A comic play about two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest, Canon Chasuble and Miss Prism, and what these models of Victorian propriety are up to behind closed doors.


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
