The Importance of Being Earnest | June 2008

By Oscar Wilde. Directed by Paul Marshall.

Worthing and Moncrieff invent the name Ernest for their alter egos.

Worthing becomes Ernest when visiting Gwendolene in London, and Moncrieff when visiting Worthing’s young ward Cecily in the country.  

Eventually they end up together in the country trying to bluff it out but their deceptions are discovered. 

The action is set in 1895.
