A Trivial Comedy for Serious People by Oscar Wilde
In 1890s England, two carefree young gentlemen, Jack and Algernon, lead harmless double lives using the same false name, Ernest Worthing. All is well until they fall in love with Gwendolen and Cecily, which leads to an astonishing discovery of identities. Famous for its wit and wordplay, The Importance of Being Earnest is a tonic of delight and hilarity.
