David Suchet stars as Lady Bracknell in this encore screening of the new production of Oscar Wilde's masterpiece. The Importance of Being Earnest is one of the esteemed Oscar Wilde's greatest classics. A satire of genteel Victorian manners and conventions, the story revolves around two bachelors, Algernon Moncrieff (Philip Cumbus) and John Worthing (Downton Abbey's Michael Benz). The two men both lead double lives while courting the desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax (Emily Barber) and Cecily Cardew (Imogen Doel). But when the deception is revealed, Algernon and John must deal with the consequences of their actions. Veteran stage director Adrian Noble, the man behind the likes of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The King's Speech, presents a witty, delightful new take on Wilde's masterpiece. Join us for an encore screening of the play, orignally broadcas live in October from London's Vaudeville Theatre. The production features a scene-stealing, showstopping performance from Poirot actor David Suchet as the fearsome Lady Bracknell.
