The Importance of Being Earnest is the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos both named "Ernest" to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women (Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew) who, conveniently, claim to only love men named Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise, and misadventure. The most famous of Oscar Wilde's comedies, The Importance of Being Earnest will have you laughing and rooting for "The Ernests" until the very end!
