The Importance of Being Earnest
Oscar Wilde's delectable wordplay is at the forefront of his sublime "trivial comedy for serious people," The Importance of Being Earnest. It does seem unthinkable, but both Jack Worthing and Algernon Montcrief must assume the name "Earnest" in order to win their loves' hearts. For the ladies are certain they could never be happily married to a man who was named something other than Earnest. Their dilemma leads to the most articulate hilarity in the history of theatre!
