About Importance of Being Earnest

Oscar Wilde’s much loved and brilliantly witty masterpiece The Importance  of Being Earnest stars The Bunbury Company of Players comprising Rosalind Ayres (Outnumbered, New Tricks, God and Monsters), Niall Buggy (Uncle Vanya, Dead Funny, Aristocrats), Nigel Havers (Downton Abbey, The Life of Rock with Brian Pern, Coronation Street),  Martin Jarvis (Endeavour, Law & Order: UK, Titanic), Christine Kavanagh (Basket Case, Vera, Manchild), Cherie Lunghi (Passion Play, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, The Manageress) and Siân Phillips (Marlene, The Age of Innocence, Cabaret), in a new production directed by Lucy Bailey (The Mysteries, Fortune’s Fool, Fings Ain’t Wot They Used To Be), designed by William Dudley (Fortunes Fool, Fings Ain’t Wot They Used To Be, Titus Andronicus) and the company writer is Simon Brett (the Charles Paris and Fethering series of novels, The Strangling on the Stage).


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.
