A rib-tickling Three-Act play about two bachelors- Jack and his friend Algernon. Jack loves Gwendolen and Algernon loves Cecily. Both the young girls wish to marry a man named Ernest. But Ernest is merely John�s imaginary irksome brother who apparently lands in trouble every now and then, giving Jack an excuse to visit London often to meet his lady love. A series of funny situations follow, mocking at the hypocrisies of Victorian England with tongue-in- cheek statements by the protagonists. The play ends on a happy note after a comic twist in the plot reveals that Jack�s birth name is Ernest. Both the couples are happily united as desired. The Importance of Being Earnest is a brilliant comedy by Oscar Wilde that keeps you smiling till the very end.
