5/5 stars from 4 users.WRITE A REVIEW


Nominated for 3 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Play! The Importance of Being Earnest is a glorious comedy of mistaken identity, which ridicules codes of propriety and etiquette. Dashing men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue fair ladies Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. Matters are complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on-the-sly activities - not to mention the disapproval of Gwendolen's mother, the formidable Lady Bracknell. Brian Bedford directs and stars as Lady Bracknell.
