According to The Daily Mail, Stephen Fry will play Lady Bracknell in a West End production of The Importance of Being Earnest. The article even suggests that the production will open at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in the autumn of 2014.

The first part is possible, but surely not the Drury Lane? I mean, it's far too big for a 6 person play, no? And I don't think Charlie is expected to only last a year...

Drury Lane is a mistake on Baz's part I think. I believe he meant Theatre Royal Haymarket, which would make more sense. Drury Lane is far too big and Charlie is planning to play more than a year.

Yeah the Haymarket makes much more sense. Right size for this with a celeb in.

Haymarket would make more sense alhough it must mean One Man Two Guvnors will be gone by then either closing or transfer.

I think it'll be a sellout just on Fry's name alone but I imagine they will secure the theatre once they have the dates available. Wonder if it'll be a commercial production or as part of the TRH Company as I think Trevor Nunn was to do another season once One Man finishes its run,
