The Importance Of Being Earnest

by Oscar Wilde

performed by BTG November 1990

A Play

Jack Worthing is 'Ernest' in town. He wins Gwendolyn's hand, but Gwendolyn declares that she chiefly loves him for his name - Ernest - the name Jack has allotted his non-existent brother whose peccadilloes explain his frequent absences from his country home where lives his pretty ward, Cecily. Meanwhile, Cecily has decided to marry rake-hell 'Ernest' and when Algernon presents himself in this guise, she immediately accepts his smitten proposal. However, through some highly improbable coincidences, all is happily resolved.
