The Importance of Being Earnest
Oscar Wilde

Importance of Being Earnest, The (full play) :: Oscar Wilde :: Visceral, 1986 :: Joan Plowright :: 1 hr. 49 min.
Wilde's satire comes through clearly, thanks to an animated, well-paced performance of this tale of truth and social pretense, featuring the romances of two best-friend bachelors, a young female ward, a proper older lady, and her stubbornly insistent daughter.
