Oscar Wilde’s The Importance Of Being Earnest is the quintessential crafty comedy. And audiences across the UK and Ireland will soon be able to enjoy Classic Spring’s riotous revival of it, as the hilarious production is broadcast live to over 440 cinemas.

The triumphant finale to Classic Spring’s Wilde season at the Vaudeville Theatre, the show will be broadcast live from the West End to venues on Tuesday 9 October 2018 by More2Screen.

Starring Sophie Thompson (Four Weddings And A Funeral), Fiona Button (The Split), Pippa Nixon (Grantchester), Stella Gonet (The House of Elliott) and Jeremy Swift (Downton Abbey), The Importance Of Being Earnest opened last week to rave reviews.

With fresh direction from Michael Fentiman, the show reimagines one of the most brilliantly written comedies in the English language with farcical flair.

To find your nearest venue for the cinema screening, you can click here.

Or you can share in the raucous atmosphere of a live audience at the Vaudeville by catching the show before it closes on Saturday 20 October.

The Importance Of Being Earnest is currently participating in Kids Week; throughout August, a child aged 16 or under can go free when accompanied by an adult paying full price. Adults can also purchase up to two extra children’s tickets at half price, and there are no booking fees to pay.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
