The Importance of Being Earnest
by Oscar Wilde

The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

What's in a name? turns out a lot!  Set in nineteenth century England, this play explores the fledgling personal relationships of two young couples and one...well...not so young couple.  Love may be blind, but who would have thought it would hinge on a name like Earnest?
