The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: Tim Brooke-Taylor Release Date: 01/04/2021

The most renowned and wittiest of Oscar Wilde's comedies, The Importance of Being Earnest ridicules Victorian sensibilities and is still strikingly relevant to this day. This full-cast audio adaptation featuring Tim Brooke-Taylor as Lady Bracknell is unique yet at the same time reassuringly familiar, with wonderful performances from the Offstage Theatre Group. The play itself is the story of two single gentlemen who have taken to bending the truth in order to put some excitement into their lives. John 'Jack' Worthing has invented a brother, Earnest, whom he uses as an excuse to leave his dull life behind to visit Gwendolyn Fairfax. When learning of this subterfuge, Algernon 'Algy' Montcrieff decides to take the name Earnest when visiting Jack Worthing's young and beautiful ward, Cecily Cardew. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and their adventures in romance begin to go awry when they end up together in the country. This leads to a tale of deception and disguise that becomes more and more tangled as the play goes on.

A sparkling collection of specials and spin-offs from the award-winning BBC Radio 4 comedy show, plus two tributes to the legendary Humphrey Lyttelton. This third and final Clue treasury features a panoply of specials based around the perennial 'antidote to panel games'. In the mix are I'm Sorry I Haven't a Christmas Clue, featuring the team's unique interpretation of A Christmas Carol; Humph in Wonderland, in which they venture down a rabbit hole; and In Search of Mornington Crescent, in which Andrew Marr peers behind the veil of secrecy surrounding that illustrious game. Also included are two shows commemorating the programme's inimitable original host, the late, much-missed Humphrey Lyttelton. In Chairman Humph, presented by Stephen Fry, friends and admirers including Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden recall Humph's numerous Clue highlights, while in Humph Celebration Concert, Stephen Lyttelton introduces an exceptional evening of music and comedy celebrating his father. Finally, arriving just after they've had their tea, are all three series of spin-off comedy The Doings of Hamish & Dougal. Among the performers in this superb collection are Willie Rushton, Sandi Toksvig, Andy Hamilton, Rob Brydon, Linda Smith, Jeremy Hardy, Jack Dee, Dame Judi Dench, Sir Michael Gambon and Alison Steadman.
