Oscar Wilde’s much loved and exhilarating masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest, starring David Suchet as Lady Bracknell, will end its scheduled run at the Vaudeville Theatre on Saturday 7 November 2015. The Importance of Being Earnest is being broadcast live to cinemas across the UK, Ireland and selected European countries for one night only on Thursday 8 October at 7:15pm.
Emily Barber, Michael Benz, Philip Cumbus, Imogen Doel, Michele Dotrice and Richard O’Callaghan star alongside David Suchet and The Importance of Being Earnest is directed by Adrian Noble.
Written shortly before Wilde fell foul of society’s unbending condemnation, The Importance of Being Earnest fizzes with wit as he delights in debunking social pretensions. Two bachelor friends, upper crust dandy Algernon Moncrieff (Philip Cumbus) and the most reliable John Worthing J.P. (Michael Benz), lead double lives to court the attentions of the desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax (Emily Barber) and Cecily Cardew (Imogen Doel). The gallants must then grapple with the uproarious consequences of their ruse, and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
