Oscar Wilde’s much loved and brilliantly witty masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest is touring the UK from September 2015.

Rosalind Ayres, Nigel Havers, Martin Jarvis, Christine Kavanagh and Siân Phillips will be reprising their West End performances, and are joined by Nigel Anthony, Carmen du Sautoy and David Shaw-Parker, performing as The Bunbury Company of Players.

This new production is directed by Lucy Bailey, designed by William Dudley with added material written by Simon Brett, lighting design by Oliver Fenwick, and composition and sound design by Tom Mills.

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 result in a plot that twists and fizzles with some of the finest dialogue to be found in theatre.
