Oscar Wilde’s entertaining comedy sparkles with charm, wit and hilarity. This ahead-of-its-time satire of Victorian morality showcases two carefree bachelors and their pursuit of love, complicated by imaginary characters invented by both men to conceal carefully hidden double lives. Full of high-anxiety hijinks and dramatic revelations in the idyllic English countryside, The Importance of Being Earnest reminds us of how good it feels to laugh out loud.
