The Importance of Being Earnest is Oscar Wilde's trivial comedy for serious people. It's a devilishly entertaining satire of the upper class about mistaken identities, secret engagements, and lovers' entanglements...and it's probably one of the wittiest comedies in the English language. Pandemonium breaks out when the fictitious "Ernest" is involved. Can anyone save the day? Directed by A.J. Allegra.
