An exquisite work of comic revelry subtitled 'A Trivial Comedy for Serious People', Importance of Being Earnest is the last and most popular of Oscar Wilde's plays. There is more to the play than its dazzling, hilarious plot - Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew being courted with gradual success by John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff. The Victorian mannerisms and pompous life style are brought under scathing attack through sharp, witty, sarcastic strips of conversation and adept characterisation.


Playwright, novelist, poet and epigrammatist, Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin in 1854. A self-proclaimed socialist and brilliant classicist, he published his only novel The Picture of Dorian Gray in 1891, followed by witty plays such as A Woman of No Importance (1893). Wilde died in 1905.
