Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest returns to the heart of London for four weeks only at Jermyn Street Theatre from Monday 16 April to Saturday 12 May 2007.

We're offering readers the chance to win one of four pairs of tickets to see the play on Monday 16, Tuesday 17 or Wednesday 18 April.

Literally streets away from the site of the St James' Theatre where the play received its world première in 1895, The Importance of Being Earnest is revived by burgeoning London based theatre company Antic Disposition with character actor James Pellow in the pivotal role of Lady Bracknell, which adds a curiously cunning twist to this endearingly popular comedy of manners, morals and mores.

Frivolous man-about-town Algernon Moncrieff has invented a fictitious invalid friend named Bunbury, who regularly requires his presence in the country. His countrified friend Jack Worthing has created an imaginary brother named Ernest, who frequently requires his presence in town.

Providing the perfect excuse to avoid all manner of social occasions, these seemingly harmless deceptions cause colossal confusion as the truth is unravelled when both men make proposals of marriage. But precisely who wants to marry whom?

Central to proceedings is the dominant figure of Lady Bracknell, whose disapproval of Jack as a potential fiancée for her daughter Gwendolen acts as a catalyst for the events that ensue. James Pellow undertakes the invigorating challenge of playing the patriarchal role of Lady Bracknell in a way that reinforces the absurdity of her character whilst conveying the sincerity of her convictions and social status.

The cast of this exuberant production also includes Stephen Carlile who recent played Freddy in the UK tour of My Fair Lady as Algernon, Ian Hallard (Where the Heart Is) as Jack and Georgina Carey as Gwendolen.

The Importance of Being Earnest is directed by Ben Horslen and John Risebero with design by John Risebero, lighting design by Howard Hudson and music by James Burrows.
