The Importance of Being Earnest at The Everyman Theatre

Productions at The Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham

Oscar Wilde’s theatrical masterpiece is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest comedies in the English language.  Wonderful characters, sparkling dialogue, gloriously improbably plot twists and a sprinkling of romance – The Importance of Being Earnest has it all.
Jack is in love with Gwendolen.  Algernon is in love with Cecily.  But when an identity crisis spirals out of control, the previously separate worlds of town and country collide and delicious mayhem ensues.  Thoughts of marriage and a happy ending must be put on hold until the inimitable Lady Bracknell can be convinced that the young men are worthy suitors.
The Importance of Being Earnest has delighted millions since its first London performance in 1895.  A scintillating comedy of manners, Oscar Wilde’s best-loved work overflows with dazzling wordplay and comic invention.
London Classic theatre who brought the mesmerising and stylish Equus to the Everyman recently, promise to bring this 19th century classic to vivid, extravagant life with their customary flair, attention to detail, high-quality casting and impeccable production values.
