Oscar Wilde's classic is a delight from the first cucumber sandwich on as Jack's double life catches up with him. The problems are resolved in an extremely charming and quite unexpected way as Jack and Algernon discover the importance of being earnest while answering to the name of Ernest.

- "This is a delightful classic to which audiences respond favorably. The production requires considerable attention to detail, but the results are rewarding. Characters may be interpreted in many ways, allowing the persons portraying them to demonstrate their creativity and talent. The technical aspects are not complicated and can be adapted to different levels of production."
