The Importance of Being Earnest

By Oscar Wilde

Two friends, Jack and Algernon, pretend to be called Ernest in order to court their sweethearts, Gwendolen and Cecily, who each insist that they can only love a man bearing that name. When their deceptions are revealed, it seems that Fate has dealt a fatal blow to both romances. But with the unlikely help of an old handbag, there may yet be hope for true love...
