Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest is Oscar Wilde’s most popular play today, enduring thanks to its easy humor, witty dialog, and clever satire. It was also one of his more successful plays, despite its first run being prematurely ended after only 86 performances. The main characters pretend to be other people in order to escape social obligations, with the resulting confusion of identities driving the plot and the humor behind it.
Earnest also holds the sad distinction of being Wilde’s last published play. A feud with an aristocrat whose son was Wilde’s lover led to a court case revealing Wilde as a homosexual — a crime in those days, and punishable by imprisonment with hard labor.

    I loved this play it's really light and enjoyable 👏
    Especially Algy's character was very interestingly amusing. Also his aunt Agusta's morality.
