For the 16th year, Worcester Repertory Company is to take outdoor theatre to the Commandery in the city and in 2023 will stage Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest.

Worcester Repertory Company was founded in the 1960s. Its patron is Oscar nominee and BAFTA-winning actress Imelda Staunton. Each year, the company performs a British classic or a modern adaptation of a well-known playwright’s work.

Ian Good will direct The Importance of Being Earnest which will run from Wednesday 12 until Sunday 23 July. Casting will be revealed later.

The Importance of Being Earnest will mark the beginning of Worcester Fringe, a festival of events taking place in venues across the city, from Wednesday 12 until Sunday 30 July. Further information is available at the Worcester Theatres web site.
