The Importance Of Being Earnest at the Vaudeville Theatre


David Suchet as Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest Pinterest


David Suchet stars as Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde's much loved materpiece The Importance Of Being Earnest this summer.

Wilde's razor-sharp satire on Victorian manners is one of the funniest plays in the English language - the delightful repartee and hilarious piercing of hypocrisy and pomposity will make you laugh out loud.

Two bachelors, the dependable John Worthing and upper-class playboy Algernon Moncrieff, create different identities as they swan between dual lives in the city and country, pursuing two eligible ladies, Cecily Cardew and Gwendolyn Fairfax.

Hilarious misadventures result from their subterfuge: their brushes with the redoubtable Lady Bracknell and the uptight Miss Prism punctuate a serpentine plot that fizzes with some of the finest dialogue ever written for theatre.
