Cast Announcement: The Importance of Being Earnest

We are totally over the moon to announce the first members of our Importance of Being Earnest cast!
Laurence Pears will star as Algernon Moncrieff, alongside Lawrence Russell as Jack Worthing!

Laurence Pears in Peter Pan Goes Wrong

Lawrence Russell in The Tale of Mr Tod

Fresh from his sell-out performances in the West End hits The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong, Laurence Pears returns to Red Rose Chain to play the charming and cheeky Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff. Alongside RRC favourite (Mr Tod, Richard III, star of Theatre in the Forest) and Associate Artist, Lawrence Russell as the seemingly straight-laced Jack Worthing- this is a dream comedy pairing not to be missed!

An unbelievable, immersive tale, guaranteed to delight dapper ladies and gents throughout the land!
It’s Oscar Wilde’s world-famous play – new and re-imagined! The Importance of Being Earnest is widely regarded as one of the funniest plays in the English language, bursting with wordplay, wooing and waltzes!

Joanna Carrick’s interpretation will take you on a surreal journey through the heightened absurdity of Wilde’s words, hilariously distorting the lens through which we view the past. Cucumber sandwich anyone?
