Fancy a couple of evenings enjoying open-air theatre? Well now’s your chance.

Those purveyors of al fresco productions, Chapterhouse Theatre Company, are currently touring their summer shows.

The company visits Creswell Crags on Friday, August 3, with a production of Oscar Wilde’s finest and best-loved romantic comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest.

Larger than life characters, such as delightful Cecily, the roguish Algernon and the formidable Lady Bracknell are sure to keep you wildly entertained!

Picnic with friends and family and enjoy this exquisite new production of Wilde’s hilarious tale of double lives and mistaken identities presented in full period costume.

The production takes place at 7pm. Tickets £12 and £8 (students and under 16s). Call 01909 720378.

Chapterhouse move to Renishaw Hall later in the month where they are staging Pride and Prejudice.

Follow the adventures of Elizabeth Bennett, whose mother tries to pair her off with a string of unsuitable suitors such as the detestable Mr Collins and the rude Mr Darcy.

The play takes place at 6.30pm in the hall’s Italianate gardens. Tickets costs £13.50 and £9 (students and under 16s). Call (01246) 432310.
