The Importance Of Being Earnest Tickets

David Suchet will star as Lady Bracknell is Oscar Wilde's much loved materpiece The Importance Of Being Earnest this spring. 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 bachelors, the dependable John Worthing, J.P and upper-class playboy Algernon Moncrieff, feel compelled to create different identities in order to pursue 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 in all of theatre.
