Get Engaged Again at Malvern Theatre


After a successful summer soirée at Sassafras, (or maybe you missed out on tickets), join us at Malvern Theatre for a hilarious comedy about the everlasting perils of love, marriage and money.

Cheviot Hill is the central figure of the piece – who is continually falling in love at the drop of a hat. His romantic inconstancy is of intense pecuniary interest to two other men: Belvawney, who receives £1,000 a year as long as Cheviot remains unmarried; and Mr. Symperson, who shall receive £1,000 a year once Cheviot is either wed or dead.

This hilarious farce was the inspiration for Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest”. It is equally witty, clever, and great fun. It will be performed in the garden, and the living room at The Knowe in Sassafras, next summer. These become the Scottish border and a London salon in this gorgeously funny production, directed by Diana Burleigh, internationally recognised authority on the works of Gilbert & Sullivan.

“Engaged’ is W.S. Gilbert alone, without Sullivan, and it is still outrageously funny” – The Canadian Globe and Mail. 2016
