The Importance of Being Earnest

By Oscar Wilde

Jack’s fictional brother Ernest who is always up to good ends up in a lot of trouble when two women, Jack’s true love and his ward believe to be engaged to Ernest as both Jack and his friend Algernon use the name when proposing. As the lies unfold so does the past and the truth comes out.
