“Oh, I don't think I would care to catch a sensible man. I shouldn't know what to talk to him about.”

Impressionable Cecily Cardew is to be played by Charlotte Pask. Many of Cecily’s manipulative techniques help to serve up the delicious comedy of Wilde’s witty play.

Charlotte trained in Musical Theatre at London Studio Centre and went on to perform professionally in a number of jobs including pantomime, cruising, short films and a production of Thoroughly Modern Millie in the West End.

She now performs with local theatrical companies, including Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy and TAT’s. She has performed at The Arches a number of times including last summer when she played Hermia in etc’s production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Charlotte also regularly performs with Theatreworkz where her roles have included Nancy & Bet in Oliver! and Lily St Regis in Annie.

I like that Cecily has an element of naivety about her but can give as good as she gets,” said Charlotte. “Her eccentric nature and imagination will make her a very fun character to play.
