“I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone.”
Jack and Algernon, two dashing young men-about-town, lead double lives with the help of “Mr. Bunbury” and “Earnest.” Jack’s imaginary brother, Earnest, provides an excuse to frolic in town while Algernon’s imaginary friend, Bunbury, allows him to take adventures in the country. However, their deceptions eventually cross paths when both men pretend their name is Earnest in order to impress their lady loves, Gwendolyn and Cecily, as well as Gwendolyn’s formidable mother, Lady Bracknell. This timeless tale is one of the funniest comedies in the English language from the brilliant Oscar Wilde!
