The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest Theatre Breaks are no longer available to book.

Award winning actor David Suchet stars as the formidable Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s charming comedy The Importance of Being Earnest this Spring.

Wilde’s superb satire on Victorian manners is one of the funniest plays in the English language – the delightful rapartee and the hilarious piercing hyprocrisy and pomposity will still make you laugh out loud over 100 years after it was written.

When two friends, the dependable John Worthing and playboy Algernon Moncrieff, feel compelled to create different identities in order to pursue two eligible ladies, Cecily Cardew and Gwendolyn Fairfax, it can only lead to disaster! So, when the four young lovers meet at the same country house one weekend, there is only so much subterfuge the two men can get away with before being found out.

Hotels close by

The Vaudeville Theatre on the Strand has two favourite Theatre Break hotels very close by: the 4 star Strand Palace Hotel and the lovely 4 star deluxe Guoman Charing Cross. Just round the corner there is also the ultra trendy 5 star ME London hotel with its uniquely named rooms and its cool bars and restaurants.

Of course my favourite has always been the Kingsway Hall on Great Queen Street but you don’t need to stay nearby. Covent Garden and Charing Cross tube stations are nearby to whisk you off to any part of London, or you can take a delightful stroll across the Thames and head for one of the hotels on the south side of the river: a bit cheaper AND you get the benifit of those beautiful views up and down the Thames as you head back after the show!
