The Importance of Being Earnest Starring David Suchet

1 - 6 June 2015

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People.

'In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing.' – Gwendolen, Act III

Prior to a West End run, David Suchet will star as Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s much loved masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest.

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 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.

David Suchet is one of Britain’s most respected actors on both stage and screen. Best known for his title role in television’s Poirot, his most recent stage credits include Long Day’s Journey Into Night and All My Sons in the West End. Winner of an International Emmy award for his performance in BBC drama Maxwell, he has been nominated for numerous Olivier, Tony and BAFTA awards throughout his career, and was awarded the CBE in 2010.

Directed by Adrian Noble, be the first to experience this major new production before it opens in the West End this Summer.
