The Importance of Being Earnest

Oscar Wilde
LA Theatre Works
Directed by Michael Hackett
Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Earnest, ""that name which inspires absolute confidence."" Wilde's effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.
