The Importance of Being Earnest is a play by Oscar Wilde. Featuring Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, this classic work of wit and romance leads into chaos. Poking fun of almost every element of society, the rogues fall in love with women who are as alike as peas in a pod. With a mysterious past dilemma and an aging aunt, will they ever be able to successfully get engaged, much less marry?
