At Pomegranate Theatre

The Pomegranate Theatre is proud to present this satellite broadcast as part of its cinema programme.

A new production of one of the funniest plays in English, Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, will be broadcast to cinemas from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End. 

Wilde’s much-loved masterpiece throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theatre’s most dazzling firework displays. Jack, Algy, Gwendolyn and Cecily discover how unsmooth runs the course of true love, while Lady Bracknell keeps a baleful eye on the mayhem of manners. 

Don’t miss the final instalment of Classic Spring’s ‘deliciously charming’ (Sunday Times) Oscar Wilde Season, a year-long celebration of the brilliant Victorian playwright. 

Michael Fentiman’s witty new production stars Olivier-Award winner Sophie Thompson as Lady Bracknell (Guys and Dolls, Chichester/West End; Four Weddings and a Funeral), Jeremy Swift in the role of Reverend Chasuble (Downton Abbey, ITV) and Fiona Button as Cecily Cardew (The Split, BBC).

(Running Time: 150min)
