Watching a West End show is #15 in our London Bucket List

Written by: Oscar Wilde; Cast: Fehinti Balogun, Geoffrey Freshwater, Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, Sophie Thompson, Pippa Nixon, Stella Gonet, Fiona Button, Tim Gibson, Jeremy Swift, Matt Crosby, Meg Coombs, Alana Ramsey

The Vaudeville Theatre will be putting on a production of Oscar Wilde's comic masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest.

The madcap romantic tale follows two girls and two suitors who are hoping to marry... plus Lady Bracknell (who is hoping for a cucumber sandwich).

When Jack conjures up a fictitious brother called Earnest he is simply hoping to escape from the social boundaries of his status. But then he falls in love as Earnest, as does his friend Algernon. And then he needs to convince Lady Bracknell of his suitability as a suitor to win Gwendolyn's hand in marriage — that's the real complications start!
