The Importance Of Being Earnest
In The Importance of Being Earnest, two bachelors, the dependable John Worthing, J.P and upper-class playboy Algernon Moncrieff, feel compelled to create different identities in order to pursue Cecily Cardew and Gwendolyn Fairfax. Hilarious misadventures result from their subterfuge: their brushes with the redoubtable Lady Bracknell and the uptight Miss Prism punctuate a serpentine plot that fizzes with some of the finest dialogue in all of theatre.
You can expect these consummate comic craftspersons to breathe fresh life into Wilde's masterfully constructed farce, and to transport you with wit and charm to its late 19th century tableau of misunderstandings, mistaken identities and, of course, the invincible Lady Bracknell.
