About The Importance of Being Earnest

David Suchet stars as Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s much loved masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest which comes to the Vaudeville Theatre for a strictly limited season.

Directed by Adrian Noble, Wilde’s superb satire on Victorian manners is one of the funniest plays in the English language – the delightful repartee and hilarious piercing of hypocrisy and pomposity can still make you laugh out loud.

In The Importance of Being Earnest, Two bachelor friends, the adorable dandy Algernon Moncrieff and the utterly reliable John Worthing J.P., lead double lives to court the attentions of the exquisitely desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. The gallants must then grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions, and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.

In addition to David Suchet, the cast of The Importance of Being Earnest includes  Emily Barber, Michael Benz, Philip Cumbus, Imogen Doel, Michele Dotrice and Richard O'Callaghan.
