The Importance of Being Earnest
by Oscar Wilde

Further details still to be announced.

Synopsis:
Jack Worthing is “Ernest” in town. He wins Gwendolyn’s hand, but Gwendolyn declares that she chiefly loves him for his name — Ernest — the name Jack has allotted his non-existent brother whose peccadilloes explain his frequent absences from his country home where lives his pretty ward, Cecily. Meanwhile, Cecily has decided to marry rake-hell “Ernest” and when Algernon presents himself in this guise, she immediately accepts his smitten proposal. However, through some highly improbable coincidences, all is happily resolved.
