Set in Victorian England, the play is a farcical social satire on the triviality of social institutions. The play follows Jack and Algernon, who, in pursuit of their lady loves Gwendolyn and Cecily, both assume the same alternate identity: Earnest Worthing. 
In spectacular fashion, their double lives collide at Jack’s country manor and their deceptions are revealed. Cecily and Gwendolyn are both engaged to a man named 
Earnest Worthing, but neither Jack nor Algernon is Earnest at all!

This elegant Comedy of Manners has stood the test of time and appeals to people of all ages. For over a hundred years it has had audiences roaring with laughter.
