About Importance of Being Earnest, The

Oscar Wilde’s much loved and brilliantly witty masterpiece The Importance  of Being Earnest at the Harold Pinter Theatre features an all-star cast comprising Rosalind Ayres, Niall Buggy, Patrick Godfrey, Nigel Havers, Martin Jarvis, Christine Kavanagh, Cherie Lunghi and Siân Phillips performing as The Bunbury Company of Players, in a new production directed by Lucy Bailey.

★★★★★ ‘Playwright Simon Brett has given Oscar Wilde’s classic a delightful new context and I don’t think I’ve enjoyed the play quite as much since the first couple of times I ever saw it’ Daily Mail

‘Philips is one of the best Lady Bracknells I have ever seen; skirting caricature without embracing it, she encapsulates the low venality of the high born’ Daily Express 

★★★★ ‘Lucy Bailey’s thoroughly likeable, high-concept revival of this well-thumbed play’ The Times 

‘It's a joy to hear Wilde's dialogue delivered with such poised musicality and mischief by seasoned performers of the calibre of Christine Kavanagh and Cherie Lunghi and Martin Jarvis and Nigel Havers’ The Independent 

The Importance of Being Earnest is known to elegantly lampoon the hypocrisies of a Victorian society and opens as two bachelors, the dependable, John Worthing, J.P. and upper class playboy Algernon Moncrieff, feel compelled to create different identities in order to pursue two eligible ladies Cecily Cardew and Gwendolyn Fairfax. The hilarious misadventures which result from their subterfuge; their brushes with the redoubtable Lady Bracknell and the uptight Miss Prism results in a plot that twists and fizzles with some of the finest dialogue to be found in theatre.
