The Importance of Being Earnest Description

Oscar Wilde's masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest, is back once again in a fine production by the celebrated Michael Fentiman. First seen on stage in the late 19th century, this madcap romantic tale is as relevant today as it was then.

The carefree Jack Worthing creates a fictitious brother known as 'Earnest', allowing him to escape from the social boundaries of his status. He, in turn, fall in love under this pseudonym, as does his friend Algernon. Jack needs to convince Lady Bracknell to win Gwendolyn's hand in marriage, but a twist in the tale saves the day. Toying with Victorian conventions and social status, this madcap, farcical play is a heart-warming tale awarding plenty of laughs along the way.

In Fentiman's adaptation, the tale has been revived into one of its most acclaimed editions. Starring the Olivier Award-winning Sophie Thompson (Four Weddings and a Funeral) as Lady Bracknell, along with Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (Wolf Hall) as Jack, Pippa Nixon as Gwendolyn, Fiona Button as Cecily Cardew, Fehinti Baluogun as Algernon, and the esteemed Stella Gonet as Miss Prism, this fabulous cast has helped Fentiman revive Wilde's classic tale and award him much acclaim. Catch this West End show while you can.
