Lady Bracknell's Confinement Or, The Bunburyist

Synopsis:
We hear off stage the final moments of Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest" and then Lady Bracknell enters and tells the story of her life. She or rather he was born to poor but politically radical parents in the East End. When both parents die the young William finds employment at a theatre as dresser and as someone to help with line learning to the star actress Miss Betty Bridley. an unfortunate accident means that Miss Bridley is unable to perform and William is persuaded to take her role - as he knows all the words. after a performance a Gerald Fairfax - the future Lord Bracknell - pays court not knowing that she really is a man. The thought of a title proves to be too much and so Mr Fairfax's proposal is accepted. and then things start to get complicated -
