About The Importance of Being Earnest

"The Importance of Being Earnest"

by Oscar Wilde
 
Hailed as “Wilde’s masterwork” by The New York Times, this stylish comedy of manners is the story of assumed names, mistaken lovers and preposterous enchantment. A delightfully witty and light-hearted romp through Victorian society, two young bachelors pretend to be earnest — and Ernest — as they aim to win their ladies’ hearts.
