The Importance of Being Earnest

Written by Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde’s brilliantly clever comedic masterpiece tells the story of two young gentlemen in London, who each lives a double-life, creating elaborate deceptions in order to have some balance in their life. John Worthing escapes the burdens of responsibility to have an exciting life in the city, pretending to be his fictitious younger brother Ernest. Algernon Moncrieff, meanwhile, has invented a convenient invalid Bunbury whom he uses as an excuse to gallivant off to the country whenever he pleases. When John falls in love with Algernon’s cousin, Gwendolen, he is determined to come clean—but when Gwendolen reveals she can only love a man named Ernest, it somewhat complicates things.
