Sorry for the delay in this blog post it’s been a crazy rollercoaster of a week.

The Importance of Being Earnest was sharp, on point and very noticeably well rehearsed. The cast had me in stitches from the opening scene but they also raised a point on gay marriage and they relight a fire in me for local talent. That’s a rather large statement for one production but it was remarkable.


It entertained, stayed true to the original Oscar Wilde farce and left everyone with a smile on their face. Bruiser brought fun and frivolity to the stage with the help of a troop of talented actors and a beautiful score.


The seven strong cast all played a part on this overall effect but special mention should go to Ross Anderson-Doherty for his role as the impenetrable Miss Prism and Samuel Townsend as Hon. Gwendolyn Fairfax both actors caught my eye throughout the production with their fabulous voices and comical faces. I don’t want to retell the plot or spoil any scenes so I’m not going to go into too many details but just go see it.

The Importance of Being Earnest will  run until 15 April 2017 and I can honestly say Lisa May, Director of Brusier has a hit on her hands.

In her own words May describes the production as “a real treat for lovers of classic Wilde, but also for theatre-goers looking for an all-out comedy night at theatre. In our version, we stay true to Wilde’s original words and characters, but deliver in the unique Bruiser style. “We’ve been working hard to tackle Wilde’s comic masterpiece – bringing to the foretimeless themes of relationships and identity, still as relevant to audiences today asever.”

And I have to agree this production is a treat for all. To get your hands on some tickets go to
