Not having much experience of Oscar Wilde, and not having actually even looked at the flyers before I arrived I didn't really know what to expect. However, the dialogue and plot was easy to follow, and there were some particularly funny moments (especially Barry Howard's hyper-camp Herr Winckelkopf, Royce Mills's absent-minded Dean of Chichester).
The cast contained many recognisable but not easily placable comedy actors/actresses.
It was interesting to observe that the audience seemed to consist entirely of white middle-class middle-aged locals, with very few young people, and almost no asians. I don't know if that was something to do with the play, or more to do with the "high brow" nature of theatre.
