Oscar Wilde’s much-loved classic play, The Importance Of Being Earnest, will be broadcast LIVE to Haslemere Hall from London’s Vaudeville Theatre on Thursday 8 October 2015, with additional backstage footage and cast interviews exclusive to the cinema event.

Poirot star and Olivier Award winner David Suchet returns to the West End as the formidable Lady Bracknell in a live broadcast Oscar Wilde’s much loved masterpiece from the Vaudeville Theatre in London

Oscar Wilde’s superb satire on Victorian manners is one of the funniest plays in the English language – the delightful repartee and hilarious piercing of hypocrisy and pomposity will make you laugh out loud!

Two bachelor friends, the adorable dandy Algernon Moncrieff (Philip Cumbus – regular player at Shakespeare’s Globe) and the utterly reliable John Worthing J.P. (Downton Abbey’s Michael Benz) lead double lives to court the attentions of the exquisitely desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax (Emily Barber) and Cecily Cardew (Imogen Doel). The gallants must then grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions – and with the formidable Lady Bracknell (David Suchet – Hercule Poirot in ITV’s Agatha Christie’s Poirot).

Directed by former artistic director of the RSC, Adrian Noble (Amadeus, The King’s Speech, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang).
