The Importance of Being Earnest
Previews from 1 July 2015
David Suchet stars as Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s much loved and exhilarating masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest 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 and the most reliable John Worthing J.P., lead double lives to court the attentions of the desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. The gallants must then grapple with the uproarious consequences of their ruse, and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
