The Importance of Being Earnest

Considered one of the greatest comedies ever written, The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde, is a farce playing with love, religion, and truth as it tells the tale of two men, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, who bend the truth in order to add excitement to their lives.

Jack invents an imaginary brother, Ernest, whom he uses as an excuse to escape from his dull country home and galavant in town. Meanwhile, Algernon follows Jack’s scam, but his imaginary friend, Bunbury, provides a convenient method of adventuring in the country. However, their deceptions eventually cross paths, resulting in a series of crises that threaten to spoil their romantic pursuits. Hailed as the first modern comedy in England, this play conveys warmth and wit through its hilarious characters and their outlandish situations.
