About Importance of Being Earnest, The
Two girls earnest to marry, two gentlemen eager to respond, and one Lady earnestly hoping for cucumber sandwiches. Join Jack, Algernon, Gwendolen, Cecily and Lady Bracknell at the Theatre Royal Haymarket to discover the vital importance of being Earnest.
This hilarious and critically acclaimed production transfers to the West End following a sell-out at one of London’s most beloved fringe theatres, the Old Red Lion Theatre in Islington.
Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest is one of the most popular plays ever written. Subtitled ‘A trivial comedy for serious people’, it is bursting with hilarious lines and extraordinary twists of fate and sparkles with the witty dialogue of its genteel protagonists.
‘Probably the most enjoyable interpretation I have seen on the stage… such a contemporary feel that it seems the ink has barely had time to dry… This has all the hallmarks of a sell-out show’.
