This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, that name which inspires absolute confidence.

Wilde's effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

    " Although I usually don't like to read plays, I really enjoyed reading this tongue-in-cheek farce. I think it is even better than "An Ideal Husband" "

    " Laugh out loud funny. And, I loved hearing some of the history of Wilde's writing of this important theater work. I'm telling you, if you have to wash windows, a cheery little audio performance like this makes it all grand. "

    " One of the finest pieces of writing in the English language. Work like this will never age. Wilde was a true genius. I have read this play so many times and each time I do so it just gets better. Written work only beaten by seeing it performed. "

    " The importance of being Algernon: unlimited cucumber sandwiches and muffins. "
