Importance of Being Earnest
Vaudeville Theatre, London
Classic Spring is a new theatre company, formed by Dominic Dromgoole (former Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre) to celebrate the bold and ground breaking work of proscenium playwrights in the architecture for which they wrote.
'Launched with a flourish' (The Sunday Times), Classic Spring's Oscar Wilde Season promises to cast new light on Wilde's ground-breaking work, showing how more than a century on, he still strikes to the heart of social scandal.
The Importance of Being Earnest
Widely considered one of the funniest plays in English, 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.
Classic Spring announces Olivier-Award winner Sophie Thompson as Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest, from 20 July at the Vaudeville theatre. Directed by Michael Fentiman, the production also stars Jeremy Swift in the role of Reverend Chasuble and Sinad Matthews as Gwendolyn Fairfax.
