Kinsale College Wooden O Theatre Course presents two comedies this May: The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde and Gaze Not Into the Abyss, scripted by Ian Wild.

The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Belinda Wild is ‘a trivial comedy for Serious people’. This wonderful farce, the most famous and well-loved comedy of all time, is full of mistaken identities, tricky marriage proposals and delightful silliness. A ridiculous but loveable cast of characters, including pretty young ladies, idle young men, and a governess with a past , deliver witty dialogue crafted by a master wordsmith, amongst an abundance of roses, teacakes and cucumber sandwiches. The inspiration for such comic luminaries as Spike Milligan, Monty Python and the Marx Brothers, Oscar Wilde’s “delicate bubble of fancy” is guaranteed to amuse.

The Importance of Being Earnest: May 1, 2, 6, 8, 9 at 8pm and Sunday Matinee, May 3 at 2.30pm.

Gaze Not Into the Abyss, devised by Wooden O second year students and scripted by Ian Wild. What happens when a telescope and a woman fall in love? We are about to find out. The Wooden O theatre course in Kinsale College is poised to present ‘Gaze Not into the Abyss’ – the world’s first quantum musical. A tale of forbidden love, betrayal and entanglement, featuring a caretaker who longs to be a floor, a guard who arrests his own child on their birthday and a dancer whose legs are passionate, chaotic and free. This musical brings you the Hadron Kaleidoscope of a future in which the world has ignored Nietzsche’s warnings and gazed into the Abyss, furnished with original music by Ian Wild.

Don’t miss this mind-blowing and spectacular event. Gaze Not into the Abyss: May 12,13,14,15,16 at 8pm.

Wrap up warm and bring a friend to Kinsale College’s unique amphitheatre, the Wooden O Theatre.

Venue: Wooden O Amphitheatre, Kinsale College. Tickets: 10/6. Bookings: 085 7458554. www.woodenotheatrecourse.com. www.kinsalecollege.ie.
