The Importance of Being Earnest is the most popular of the comedies written by Oscar Wilde (1854-1900). Set (for this particular production) in 1920s London and in Shropshire, England, it involves the doings of two best friends, Jack and Algy (Algernon). Jack lives in the country, protective of his young ward, the “excessively pretty” heiress Cecily Cardew. But he likes to get away to London and the attractions of the city, so he has invented a rascally brother in London named Ernest to whom he must occasionally attend, necessitating his periodic departure from the country. The biggest draw in London for Jack is Algy’s cousin, the beautiful Gwendolen Fairfax.
Algy, meanwhile, goes to Shropshire posing as Ernest in an attempt to woo Cecily. As Shakespeare said, “Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.”
It also turns out that both women are attracted to men with the name of Ernest, so naturally both fellows make arrangements to have themselves re-christened.
In the course of things, the deceptions of Jack and Algy will be found out. Can their lady loves possibly forgive them?
It ultimately turns out that Jack and Algy share more in common than they could possibly have imagined, and that they have destinies that neither could have suspected.
NOTE: It is always a good idea to verify date, time, location and other information prior to going.
