To Hell in A Handbag: The Secret Lives of Canon Chasuble and Miss Prism

  • The Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre 9 Market Street Armagh, Northern Ireland, BT61 7BW United Kingdom (map)

Admission: £14 | BOOK HERE

Written & Performed by Helen Norton & Jonathan White

While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from Oscar Wilde’s comic masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, embezzlement and false identity. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic. To Hell in a Handbag comes to JHISS in Armagh after a highly successful Edinburgh Fringe run and English tour in 2018.

“To Hell in a Handbag is a delight – beautifully written and acted with exquisite comic timing.”  The Mail On Sunday

“Wickedly, side-splittingly funny …a joyous romp not to be missed”– Sunday Independent
