The Importance of Being Earnest- Vaudeville Theatre London

July 11 @ 19:00pm - 21:13pm

£8 – £12

For The Importance of Being Earnest

A ‘brilliantly funny’ and ‘charming’ new production of one of the funniest plays in English, Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, filmed live at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End, is coming to the big screen. 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.

 

Michael Fentiman’s ‘absolutely hilarious’ (★★★★★ WhatsOnStage) adaptation 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).

 

This is the ‘magnificent’ (★★★★ Sunday Times) final instalment of Classic Spring’s critically acclaimed Oscar Wilde Season, a year-long celebration of the brilliant Victorian playwright.
