Dominic Dromgoole’s Classic Spring theater company was founded after he left Shakespeare’s Globe, and one of his first major events was an Oscar Wilde season.

Filmed at London’s Vaudeville Theatre, the Oscar Wilde season included a performance of The Importance of Being Earnest.

Widely considered one of the funniest plays in English, Wilde’s much loved masterpiece throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theater’s most dazzling firework displays.

Michael Fentiman’s witty new production stars Olivier Award-winner Sophie Thompson (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Guys and Dolls) and Jeremy Swift (Downton Abbey, Wanderlust).
