About: The Importance of Being Earnest

Open-Air Theatre on the Tea Lawn returns to Lauderdale House, Highgate this summer with The Importance of Being Earnest by the award-winning Shooting Stars Theatre Company. Directed by Helen Crosse.
The company have delighted sold-out audiences at Lauderdale House since 2012 and have been called 'masters of accessible, intelligent and family-friendly theatre' by A Younger Theatre. They will be bringing Oscar Wilde's classic comedy bang up-to-date with modern characters and setting in a show that's enormous fun for all ages with hints of Made in Chelsea style opulence and snobbery.

Lauderdale House, Highgate Hill, Waterlow Park, London, N6 5HG United Kingdom

But we mustn't forget the silent star in all of this, Lauderdale House, the perfect setting for an evening of classic theatre and picnics. The next time Theatre on the Tea Lawn returns, snap up your tickets quickly." Bring your picnic blankets and join us one evening this summer to enjoy a family-friendly play on the Tea Lawn under the stars.
