When Georgia Adamson, fellow actor and regular cast member in previous productions for Sport for Jove, told me that acclaimed director, Damien Ryan, was planning a production of  ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, and suggested that I make a pitch for the much loved role of Lady Bracknell, I could not resist the temptation.  The play is such an enduring  source of delight over 120 years after it was first written, by a man whose life was cut short by his refusal to adhere to social norms. Lady Bracknell tries to maintain her status as a respected member of the upper class, but dark secrets of her past life unravel in the play. It is a thrill to work with such an inventive and accomplished director and working with him on this role is a privilege and a delight. Hoping that I don’t make a hash of it, working with such a good cast, I doubt they would allow me to let the side down.
