The Importance of Being Earnest
The Grand Opera House is delighted to welcome 'The Importance of Being Earnest' by the master of comedy Oscar Wilde, in a wonderfully witty, deliciously decadent and classic revival.
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.
Starring national treasure Gwen Taylor (The Billy Plays, Coronation Street, Duty Free and Barbara) as the formidable Lady Bracknell and Susan Penhaligon (Upstairs Downstairs, A Bouquet of Barbed Wire), Wilde's most famous and entertaining play is set to delight and amuse this Spring.
