Welcome to The Synergy Theatre

We didn’t need dialogue. We had faces.” – Norma Desmond, Sunset Boulevard

The grande dame of the silver screen may have had a point but, while we have some very lovely and expressive faces at Synergy, we are also rather fond of dialogue. Having had the privilege to perform the work of some of the greatest wordsmiths ever to commit pen (or quill) to paper (goatskin vellum – just like Her Majesty), we are back this summer with our annual outdoor production and, this year, we’re delighted to revive Oscar Wilde’s glorious comedy of muffins & manners, The Importance of Being Earnest.

Wilde’s classic play needs very little introduction. Jack loves Gwendolen; Gwendolen loves Jack – but only because she thinks he’s called ‘Ernest’. Algernon loves Cecily; Cecily loves Algernon (but only because she, too, thinks he’s called ‘Ernest’). Miss Prism loves Dr. Chasuble; Dr. Chasuble loves Miss Prism (who is definitely not called ‘Ernest’ and they’re both fine with that). Lady Bracknell is Gwendolen’s fearsome mother, who has a thing about ‘handbags’ and the rest, as they say, is pure theatrical gold. Join Jack, Gwendolen, Algy, Cecily, Miss Prism, Dr. Chasuble and Lady Bracknell in the beautiful Sussex countryside to find true love, laugh a lot and learn exactly what was in that handbag...

The Importance of Being Earnest will be performed at The Grange Tea Gardens, Rottingdean (7th – 9th July), The Hoe, Piddinghoe (12th & 13th July) and The Village Green, Kingston-near-Lewes (14th & 15th July). Tickets are available from our box office on 01323 890974, via our website (See Tickets) or from MadWax candles (Rottingdean) and 01273 474303 (Kingston-near-Lewes).

I look forward to seeing you at a Synergy production soon.
