Oscar Wilde Season LIVE

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

Broadcast live from the Vaudeville Theatre, London

A new production of one of the funniest plays in English, Oscar Wilde's THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, will be broadcast live to cinemas from the Vaudeville Theatre in London's West End.

Wilde's much-loved masterpiece throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theatre’s 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. This is the fourth and final play from the Oscar Wilde Season, a year-long celebration of the brilliant Victorian playwright being staged by the Classic Spring Theatre Company. 
 
Michael Fentiman's witty new production stars Olivier Award winner Sophie Thompson (Guys and Dolls, Chichester/West End; Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Jeremy Swift (Downton Abbey), alongside Fiona Button (The Split), Pippa Nixon (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, RSC) and Stella Gonet (Handbagged, Hampstead Theatre/West End).
