Oscar Wilde’s brilliant comedy The Importance of Being Earnest takes a satirical look at the lives of two bachelor friends, the adorable dandy Algernon Moncrieff and the utterly reliable John Worthing J.P who lead double lives to court the attentions of the exquisitely desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. The gallants must then grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions, and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
