Wilde’s Importance of Being Earnest – streaming from 2 July to the 16th July 2021
NUTS (NU Theatre Society) have collaborated with the national charity Acting for Others and the Sunderland Empire to develop a unique production of Wilde’s Importance of Being Earnest (the acts of the play are interspersed with original content relating to the life of Wilde)that will be available through streaming from 2 July to the 16th July. Tickets are on sale now and all details are on the attached press release.

As Louisa Rimmer, a SELLL second-year student and President of NUTS says, “It is the biggest project that the society has ever executed, being directed, produced, filmed, edited, acted, and marketed all by Newcastle University students, in an effort to raise as much money as possible, so I would be so grateful, along with the rest of the society, if you fancied buying a ticket or sharing the event with anybody who you think might enjoy it!”

If you have signed up for one of these events, just a reminder that the timeslot allocated for all SELLL programmes is Friday 16th July 2021 from 9am-1pm and further information is provided on this link.
