“The Importance of Being Earnest” is a comedy of mistaken identity, which ridicules codes of propriety and etiquette.  Dashing men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue fair ladies Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew.   Matters are complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on-the-sly activities – not to mention the disapproval of Gwendolen’s mother, the formidable Lady Bracknell.

For The Record:

The Stratford Shakespeare Festival produced a production of The Importance of Being Earnest in 2009 directed by and starring Brian Bedford.
