Oscar Wilde’s comedy of two men and their similar pseudonyms.

Algernon Moncrieff and Jack Worthing discover they have both been leading duel lives. Jack lives in the country with his pretty ward Cecily Cardew, but in London he is known only as Earnest and is head over heels in love with Gwendolen Fairfax. Miss Fairfax’s cousin is Algernon, who, also under the name of Earnest, goes to the country and in turn falls passionately in love with Jack’s ward Cecily.
