Jack Worthing is a pillar of the community in Hertfordshire, where he is guardian to Cecily Cardew, the pretty, eighteen-year-old granddaughter of the late Thomas Cardew, who found and adopted Jack when he was a baby. For years, Jack has pretended to have a troublesome brother named Ernest. In fact, Ernest is Jack’s pseudonym, an alibi that lets him go off and do as he pleases. No one knows that Jack himself is Ernest. Algernon Moncrieff, cousin to the lovely Gwendolen Fairfax, has begun to suspect the man he knows as Ernest may be living a double life, which he approves of, regarding it as normal behavior. Jack plans to propose to Gwendolen, despite her mother, Lady Bracknell’s, protestations. And once Algernon learns of Jack’s sister Cecily, he runs off to the country to propose to her, as Jack’s “brother” Ernest. The problems are resolved in an extremely charming and quite unexpected way as Jack and Algernon discover the importance of being earnest while answering to the name of Ernest.
The Importance of Being Earnest plays Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, November 9, at 3:30 p.m.
