TO HELL IN A HANDBAG
The Secret Lives of Canon Chasuble and Miss Prism
While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest, Canon Chasuble and Miss Prism, are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private?
Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination – Oscar Wilde
To Hell in a Handbag is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity and money. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic.
