One of the most loved comedic plays of all time, Oscar Wilde's The Importance of being Earnest is a delightfully witty, clever and lighthearted romp through Victorian society. When Algernon finds out his friend "Ernest" is really named Jack and leading a double life, he decides to get in on the action too. Pretty soon, "Ernest" is everywhere and both Jack and Algernon's plans go hilariously awry. Wilde's one-liners and double entendres are as laugh-out-loud funny today as they were when the play was originally written, and Theatre@First's production promises an evening of hilarity.
