The play «Importance of Being Earnest»



Ironic gentlemen, cynical idlers, majestic lackeys, aristocratic aunts, brides with crankies - all this is the paradoxical world of Oscar Wilde's comedy, in which a couple of bored bums - Jack and Algernon - appear before their beloved under the guise of a fictional character named Ernest. One Ernest is a dissolute scapegoat. The other is a sensible bore. Both are extremely attractive to their brides in this fictional capacity. But deception can not last forever, especially if Ernest becomes a rival in love ...

Wilde's comedy is a dance of comic situations and a real wit competition, whose participants compete with each other in brilliant paradoxes and subtle English humor.
