London, UK—Mar 19, 2015
More2screen to Broadcast Popular Theatre Classic The Importance of Being Earnest Live to Cinemas 8 October 2015
More2Screen is to broadcast Oscar Wilde’s much-loved classic play, The Importance Of Being Earnest, LIVE to cinemas from London’s Vaudeville Theatre on Thursday 8 October 2015. Produced by Kim Poster and Nica Burns, this new production will star one of Britain’s best-known stage, screen and television actors, David Suchet (familiar to millions of TV viewers as the detective Hercule Poirot) who will play the role of the formidable Lady Bracknell.
With its high farce and witty dialogue The Importance of Being Earnest is Oscar Wilde’s most enduringly popular play and it fizzes with wit as he delights in debunking social pretensions. Two bachelor friends, aristocratic dandy Algernon Moncrieff and the most reliable John Worthing J.P., lead double lives to court the attentions of the desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. The gallants must then grapple with the uproarious consequences of their ruse, and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
Following a six week UK tour, The Importance Of Being Earnest opens at the Vaudeville Theatre on 24 June, and will be directed by the highly respected Adrian Noble, a former Artistic Director of the RSC whose extensive theatre credits range from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Palladium to Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf for the Theatre Royal, Bath and a myriad of acclaimed productions in between.
Christine Costello, Managing Director, More2Screen comments: "We are thrilled to be appointed as the worldwide theatrical distributor for this exciting theatre project. There is a huge appetite for live theatre broadcasts within the Event Cinema space and The Importance Of Being Earnest is both a well-known classic and stars the instantly recognisable David Suchet. It’s a winning Event Cinema combination and offers our exhibitor partners around the world a fantastic programming opportunity for the autumn.”
Kim Poster, Producer for Stanhope Productions says: “As one of the world’s leading Event Cinema distributors and with their extensive experience of taking content out to their cinema partners across the globe, More2Screen is ideally placed to realise the full potential of this universally adored Oscar Wilde play.”
Following the live broadcast of The Importance Of Being Earnest on 8 October, there will be an international roll-out of the recorded production from November 2015.
