British actor David Suchet

the importance of being earnest

Baz Bamigboye // Daily Mail

Underneath the wide-brimmed hat the face is teasingly familiar, while the nose and slightly quizzical tilt of the head are clues to this Victorian grande dame’s identity.

But if¬†a¬†little detective work is¬†still needed, perhaps it¬†is¬†time to¬†call for Hercule Poirot. For this is¬†David Suchet¬†‚ÄĒ minus the Belgian detective‚Äôs famous moustache¬†‚ÄĒ dressed as¬†the indomitable Lady Bracknell.

Suchet, Agatha Christie’s dapper sleuth on ITV for 25 years, plays Lady Bracknell in a new West End production of The Importance Of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde’s satire of Victorian high society.

The role was famously portrayed on film by Edith Evans and has also been taken by Penelope Keith, Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush and Brian Bedford.

The last time David Suchet was on¬†a¬†Nottingham stage was in¬†Long Day‚Äôs Journey into Night, Eugene O‚ÄėNeill‚Äôs dark drama about addiction and family disfunction that was described by¬†our reviewer as¬†‚Äúthe best thing seen on¬†a¬†stage so¬†far this year‚ÄĚ.

A¬†contrasting production sees the Poirot star return¬†‚ÄĒ Suchet will be¬†wearing a¬†dress and full make-up.

His role as Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s classic farce The Importance of Being Earnest is one he admits he accepted with some trepidation.

‚ÄúShe was very keen that we¬†should work together on¬†something less heavy after the O‚ÄôNeill and, coincidentally, I‚Äôd also been looking for something lighter for some time. I¬†was very interested in¬†doing a¬†comedy. Of¬†course, I¬†think¬†I agreed to¬†Kim‚Äôs idea with slight trepidation. However, once I‚Äôd looked into it¬†and realised that such notable actors as¬†Brian Bedford on¬†Broadway and Geoffrey Rush in¬†Australia had played Lady Bracknell, I¬†could see that I‚Äôd be¬†following in¬†a¬†line of¬†leading male performers and¬†I felt more comfortable.‚ÄĚ
