AN ACCLAIMED production of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest returns to St Albans for a final performance next Friday, February 22.
OVO has performed Wilde's "trivial comedy for serious people" at the Trestle and Maltings Arts Theatres in St Albans as well as the Queen Mother Theatre, Hitchin, and The Bridewell Theatre in London.
The final performance will see a return to Trestle in Russet Drive where it gets underway at 8pm
Artistic director Adam Nichols said: "We have been thrilled with the response to our version of this entertaining comedy. As a touring company, we have built a reputation around Herts for staging accessible versions of the classics which has led to an annual Shakespeare residency at a theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon as well as an invitation to The Bridewell Theatre in London for two of this season's shows.
