Synopsis

A  ͚brilliantly  funny͛  (★★★★Times)  and  ͚charming͛  (★★★★Evening Standard)  new  production  of  one  of  the  funniest  plays  in  English,  Oscar  Wilde͛s  The  Importance  of  Being  Earnest,  filmed  live  at  the  Vaudeville  Theatre  in  London͛s  West  End.  


Wilde͛s  much-loved  masterpiece  throws  love,  logic  and  language  into  the  air  to  make  one  of  theatre͛s  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’s͚ absolutely  hilarious͛ 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  Night͛s  Dream,  RSC)  and  Stella  Gonet  (Handbagged,  Hampstead  Theatre/West  End).  


This  is  the  ͚magnificent͛  (★★★★Sunday  Times)  final  instalment  of  Classic  Spring͛s  critically  acclaimed  Oscar  Wilde  Season,  a  year-long  celebration  of  the  brilliant  Victorian  playwright.
