Presented at San Marin High School, Novato CA
 
By Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest, subtitled A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, is considered by many to be the wittiest play ever written in the English language. 

In this rousing, romantic escapade, Oscar Wilde dishes up scathing social satire, effervescent wit and high farce, making Earnest one of the most cherished plays in the English language. In a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, charming bachelors Jack and Algernon lead double lives to woo the two young ladies who have won their hearts. When they are caught in their lies, the stage is set for clever manipulations and hilarious confusion.
