People who have difficulty walking may find the staircase to the main stage daunting. Not sure if there's an elevator on the premises, but come prepared for a climb.

A good play great local event but it went on too long we felt that it needed some severe editing and should have lasted 80 mins , not 120 mins.

Description

Insider Trading and blackmail: Robert Chiltern is a rising politician with a bright future, an activist wife, a marriageable sister, and a charming best friend. He has the perfect life – until he is confronted with proof of the shocking indiscretion that started his meteoric rise by Mrs. Cheveley. Oscar Wilde’s classic tale of pride, politics, and posh society rings delights as much today as it did when it premiered in 1895.
