The Importance of Being Earnest

A fresh take on Wilde’s ‘comic masterpiece’ (Guardian), Michael Fentiman’s ‘hilarious’ adaptation breaths ‘new and vital’ life (★★★★★ WhatsOnStage) into ‘one of the most immaculately crafted stage comedies of all time’ (The Stage).

‘Brilliantly funny’ (★★★★ Times) and ‘charming’ (★★★★ Evening Standard) in equal measure, The Importance of Being Earnest throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theatre’s most dazzling firework displays.


Don’t miss the ‘magnificent’ (★★★★ Sunday Times) final instalment of Classic Spring’s critically acclaimed Oscar Wilde Season.

    Thoroughly enjoyable play. Clear speaking and great stage presence by all the actors. However, I didn't think it necessary to have same sex kissing and this spoilt it a little for me. But a fabulously funny play and I am so glad I went.
