2007/2 SUMMER – THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

by Oscar Wilde

Audimax, Von-Melle-Park 4, 20146 Hamburg

The Story

What better way to escape the boredom of country life than to pretend to have a naughty brother named Ernest, in the city, who needs ceaseless discipline? And what better way to escape the boredom of social engagements and escape to the country than to conjure up an ailing friend named Bunbury who needs unending care? This way of life has worked for both Jack and Algy for a long time but all that is about to change. Jack loves Gwen, Algy loves Cecily and Cecily and Gwen both love Ernest. But who is Ernest?
