Thought to be Wilde's best work, The Important of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, is a hilarious and poignant satire of Victorian era social hypocrisy. Witty and smartly plotted, Earnest is filled with memorable characters; all centred on Earnest, the fabricated brother of Jack Worthing. Earnest's exploits set off a series of unlikely events that has Jack and others caught up in a web of misunderstandings and mistaken identities all the way to the end. It is a comedy of manners from start to finish.

John (Jack) Worthing: Age 29-40. Landowner and bachelor leading a double life.
Algernon Moncrieff: Age 25-35. A man of leisure who is looking for excitement.
Lady Augusta Bracknell: Age 50-65. Upper-crust Victorian matriarch who bullies everyone in her path.

Cecily Cardew: Age 18-ish. Jack's ward. She is given to romantic fantasies
