Direct from the Walnut Street Theatre: "You can never be too (two) Earnest. The results would be a world filled with chaos, mistaken identity and uncontrollable laughter! But when you're Wilde, you have to take that chance. The Importance Of Being Earnest tells the story of two bachelor friends, dandy Algernon Moncrieff and reliable John (Jack) Worthing, as they take on double lives to court the attentions of the desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. But the gallants must then grapple with the uproarious consequences of their ruse… and with the formidable Lady Bracknell. Oscar Wilde's much loved and exhilarating masterpiece, with its high comedy and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance Of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play."
