The Importance Of Being Earnest starring Stephen Fry?

UPDATE: STEPHEN FRY HAS NOW CONFIRMED THAT THIS PRODUCTION IS NOT GOING AHEAD

Stephen Fry directs Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy The Importance Of Being Earnest, and stars as the inimitable Lady Bracknell?

Produced by David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers (Calendar Girls, The Full Monty), the theatre, full cast and dates are to be announced shortly, for a 2014 run.

Fashion designer John Galliano will be designing the costumes for Fry’s sumptuous new production, returning to the play after dressing Judi Dench’s Lady Bracknell in the 1982 National Theatre production.

The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People by Oscar Wilde, was first performed on 14 February 1895 at St. James’s Theatre in London (on King Street at Duke Street in St James’s London).

  1. Hi, I’ve just seen there is another production of this play, starring Nigel Havers, opening at The Harold Pinter Theatre in June. Does this mean this production is no longer going ahead?

  2. Hi, I don’t have twitter but I do have email. Is there any way that I could be kept up to date with email notifications instead?
    I have been looking daily to see when the tickets are available!
    Thank you and kindest regards
