The Importance Of Being Earnest

About This Show

Jack Worthing’s brother, Ernest, provides Jack with the excuse to escape from his dull home in the country to frolic in town. The home of Algernon Moncrieff’s friend Bunbury provides a convenient locale for taking adventures in the country. The problem? Ernest and Bunbury are imaginary, created by Jack and Algernon in order to add a dash of excitement to their lives. Their deceptions eventually cross paths, resulting in a series of hilarious crises that threaten to spoil their romantic pursuits.
