A rib-tickling Three-Act play about two bachelors- Jack and his friend Algernon. Jack loves Gwendolen and Algernon loves Cecily. Both the young girls wish to marry a man named Ernest. But Ernest is merely John’s imaginary irksome brother who apparently lands in trouble every now and then, giving Jack an excuse to visit London often to meet his lady love. A series of funny situations follow, mocking at the hypocrisies of Victorian England with tongue-in- cheek statements by the protagonists. The play ends on a happy note after a comic twist in the plot reveals that Jack’s birth name is Ernest. Both the couples are happily united as desired. The Importance of Being Earnest is a brilliant comedy by Oscar Wilde that keeps you smiling till the very end.

Jane Austen

Jane Austen was born on December 16, 1775 at Steventon near Basingstoke, the seventh child of the rector of the parish. She lived with her family at Steventon until they moved to Bath when her father retired in 1801. After his death in 1805, she moved around with her mother; in 1809, they settled in Chawton, near Alton, Hampshire. Here she remained, except for a few visits to London, until in May 1817 she moved to Winchester to be near her doctor. There she died on July 18, 1817. As a girl Jane Austen wrote stories, including burlesques of popular romances. Her works were only published after much revision, four novels being published in her lifetime. These are Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma(1816). Two other novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, were published posthumously in 1818 with a biographical notice by her brother, Henry Austen, the first formal announcement of her authorship. Persuasion was written in a race against failing health in 1815-16. She also left two earlier compositions, a short epistolary novel, Lady Susan, and an unfinished novel, The Watsons. At the time of her death, she was working on a new novel, Sanditon, a fragmentary draft of which survives.
