News   Pellow Will Be Bracknell in London Earnest
A limited engagement of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest will be presented at London's Jermyn Street Theatre this spring.

Directed by Ben Horslen and John Risebero, the production will feature James Pellow in the pivotal role of Lady Bracknell with Stephen Carlile as Algernon, Ian Hallard as Jack and Georgina Carey as Gwendolen. Previews will begin April 16 with an official opening April 19; the limited run will end May 12.

The creative team also includes John Risebero (designs), Howard Hudson (lighting design) and James Burrows (music).

"Frivolous man-about-town Algernon Moncrieff," press notes read, "has invented a fictitious invalid friend named Bunbury, who regularly requires his presence in the country. His countrified friend Jack Worthing has created an imaginary brother named Ernest, who frequently requires his presence in town. Providing the perfect excuse to avoid all manner of social occasions, these seemingly harmless deceptions cause colossal confusion as the truth is unravelled when both men make proposals of marriage. But precisely who wants to marry whom?"

James Pellow has been seen onstage in productions of Aladdin, An Inspector Calls, Come Blow Your Horn, Worm's Eye View, Dial M for Murder, Flare Path, Rookery Nook, Round and Round the Garden, Talking to the Universe, A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Cherry Orchard.

The Jermyn Street Theatre is located on Jermyn Street in London. Performances will play Monday-Friday evenings at 7:30 PM and Saturdays at 3 and 7:30 PM. Tickets, priced £14-£16, are available by calling 0207 287 2875 or by visiting
