A Trivial Comedy for Serious People

Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece about marriage, morality, and mistaken identity sparkles with dazzling wordplay and unlikely situations. This “trivial comedy for serious people” features two gentlemen, Jack and Algernon, each with a carefully hidden double life. When Algernon discovers that Jack has been posing as a man named Ernest to escape to the city, he promptly travels to Jack’s country estate to pose as the fictional figure himself! Confusion and hilarity reign as they fall in love with a pair of proper young women and confront the formidable Lady Bracknell in the pursuit of romance and revelry.
