The Importance of Being Earnest at the Vaudeville Theatre – 20 July to 20 October 2018


Classic Spring’s Oscar Wilde Season promises to cast new light on Wilde’s ground-breaking work.

Widely considered one of the funniest plays in English, Wilde’s much loved masterpiece throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theatre’s most dazzling firework displays.

Jack, Algy, Gwendolyn and Cecily discover how unsmooth runs the course of true love, while Lady Bracknell keeps a baleful eye on the mayhem of manners.

‘It is very romantic to be in love. The very essence of romance is uncertainty’

Michael Fentiman’s witty new production stars Olivier-Award winner Sophie Thompson (Guys and Dolls, Chichester/West End; Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Jeremy Swift (Downton Abbey, ITV), alongside Fiona Button (The Split, BBC), Pippa Nixon (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, RSC) and Stella Gonet (Handbagged, Hampstead Theatre/West End).

The Importance of Being Earnest at the Vaudeville Theatre – 24 June to 7 November 2015

215_yTPh0F8Sfi

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

Directed by Adrian Noble, Wilde’s satire on Victorian manners is considered one of the funniest plays in the English theatre – the delightful repartee and hilarious piercing of hypocrisy and pomposity makes the play popular with the audience and the actors.

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  Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. The gallants must then grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions, and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
