The Importance of Being Earnest is often described as one the funniest and most quotable plays in the English language - for good reason, as Culture Club recently discovered. Oscar Wilde’s social comedy is both an extremely enjoyable farce and a scathing critique of the English upper classes.
The current production at the Vaudeville Theatre takes the play’s humour further, brilliantly casting David Suchet (of Poirot fame) as the formidable Lady Bracknell, and the superb acting left the audience hysterical with laughter. As well as this, the beautiful scenery brought the play’s 1890s setting to life in sumptuous style, providing for a truly entertaining evening.
