The Importance of Being Earnest

Matinee performance

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People by Oscar Wilde

Prior to a West End run, David Suchet will star as Lady Bracknell in this much loved masterpiece. 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. Two bachelor friends, the adorable dandy Algernon Moncrieff and utterly reliable John Worthing lead double lives to court the attentions of the exquisitely desirable Gwendolyn and Cecily. The gallants must then grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions, and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.

The Importance of Being Earnest

David Suchet is one of Britain’s most respected actors on both stage and screen. Although probably best known for his title role in Poirot , his stage credits are formidable, including All My Sons and Amadeus and he has been nominated for numerous awards throughout his career.
