The Importance of Being Earnest is known to elegantly lampoon the hypocrisies of a Victorian society and opens as 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. The hilarious misadventures which result from their subterfuge; their brushes with the redoubtable Lady Bracknell and the uptight Miss Prism results in a plot that twists and fizzles with some of the finest dialogue to be found in theatre. 'Playwright Simon Brett has given Oscar Wilde's classic a delightful new context and I don't think I've enjoyed the play quite as much' Daily Mail 'Enjoyment, most notably from Sian Phillips as a vulture-like Lady Bracknell whose voice swoops and soars to tremendous effect' The Daily Telegraph 'Lucy Bailey's thoroughly likeable, high-concept revival of this well-thumbed play' The Times 'Philips is one of the best Lady Bracknells I have ever seen' Daily Express 'Martin Jarvis and Nigel Havers. are reunited in their glorious double-act' The Independent 'It's a joy to hear Wilde's dialogue delivered with such poised musicality and mischief by seasoned performers of the calibre of Christine Kavanagh and Cherie Lunghi and Martin Jarvis and Nigel Havers' The Independent
