    Slapstick Picnic would like to cordially invite you to its summer tea party, where marvellous feats of performance and culinary capers await. Over tea and cucumber sandwiches, we ask that you prepare to witness the impossible – the entirety of Oscar Wilde’s classic play of manners, affairs and handbags being performed by just two rather dashing entertainers.

    From the creators of The HandleBards, comes a fantastically wild(e) new production, ripping up the recipe book and celebrating silliness. With Slapstick Picnic, you can have your cake and eat it.

    This performance will be cabaret style (round tables and chairs) in our Victorian Music Hall.

    Why not enjoy a picnic in a box (sandwiches, sweet treat and a glass of beer, wine or alcohol-free alternative) for only £6 per person? You can book your picnic as an optional extra.

    Running time 90 minutes (no interval). Tickets £8-£10. Booking link: The Importance of Being Earnest (8+) - The Witham
