The Importance of Being Earnest

Turbine Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

A new reimagining of Oscars Wilde‘s much-loved masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest arrives at the Turbine Theatre direct from The Barn Theatre, Cirencester.

Wilde’s riotous comedy of false identities and true love is performed by two incredibly talented actors playing every single character.

Rapid quick-changes, tap dancing, fabulous frocks and enough tea to sink a ship, audiences are in for a wildly waggish time. It’s Oscar Wilde’s classic as you’ve never seen it before!

The Importance of Being Earnest is booking from 18 February 2020 until 29 February 2020 at the Turbine Theatre, London

What’s the Story?

Wilde’s satire of Victorian manners, opens as two bachelors, the dependable John Worthing J.P. and upper class playboy Algernon Moncrieff, create different identities for themselves in order to pursue two eligible young ladies: Cecily Cardew and Gwendolyn Fairfax.

The hilarious misadventures which result from their subterfuge, including brushes with the inimitable Lady Bracknell and the uptight Miss Prism, makes for a plot full of twists and some of the wittiest and most sparkling dialogue ever written for the stage.

Who’s in it? Cast

This two-man adaptation of The Importance of Being Earnest will star Ryan Bennett and Aidan Harkins, who play every character in the Oscar Wilde classic between them.
