It's almost time for a deliciously decadent revival of Oscar Wilde's
classic play to take to the Opera House stage!
The Importance of Being Earnest stars Gwen Taylor (Coronation Street, Duty Free and Barbara) as the formidable Lady Bracknell and Susan Penhaligon (Bouquet of Barbed Wire and A Fine Romance) as the hapless Miss Prism, Downton Abbey favourite Thomas Howes as Algernon and Broadway and West End star Kerry Ellis as Gwendolen.

Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Lady Bracknell, of the respectability of his parents and his past. For Jack, however, this is not as easy as it sounds, having started life abandoned in a handbag at Victoria station. Prepare to take a welcome turn with Wilde’s much-loved Algernon, Earnest, Gwendolen and Cecily, as town and country clash in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, perambulators and capacious handbags.

‘jovial and energetic… satisfyingly rich take on Oscar Wilde’s airy comedy’
The Stage

‘A sparkling cast… Kerry Ellis glittered with fashionable wit… Susan Penhaligon is hilarious’
Essential Surrey

‘charming, warm and true… effortlessly witty’
