One of theatre's greatest comedy creations is back on stage in a play from a new drama group.

Lady Bracknell's Confinement is the debut production for Chalk Reef Amateur Productions.

The one-man show, at Cromer Community Centre, stars John Church as the classic character from Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.

Playwright Paul Doust's comedy was written for a man to play Lady Bracknell, emphasising the pantomime dame elements of the character's snobbery and obsession with social standing.

Director Gregory Hayman said: 'The play will provide an hilarious evenings entertainment for lovers of Wilde's original play and those who are new to it.'
