David Suchet stars in The Importance of Being Earnest
The cast will also feature Emily Barber (Gwendolen Fairfax), Michael Benz (Jack Worthing), Philip Cumbus (Algernon Moncrieff), Imogen Doel (Cecily Cardew), Michele Dotrice (Miss Prism) and Richard O'Callaghan (Chasuble).
Written shortly before Wilde fell foul of society's unbending condemnation, The Importance of Being Earnest delights in debunking social pretensions. Two bachelor friends, the adorable dandy Algernon Moncrieff and the utterly reliable John Worthing J.P., lead double lives to court the attentions of the exquisitely desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. The gallants must then grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions, and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
The production will be directed by Adrian Noble and feature designs by Peter McKintosh, lighting design by Howard Harrison, music by Larry Blank and sound design by Gareth Owen.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
