"The Importance of Being Earnest":Winter semester 2010/11

The protagonists of Oscar Wilde’s most famous and enduring play, with the subtitle A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, maintain fictitious alter egos in order to escape burdensome obligations.

 Jack has invented a convenient, wicked brother called Ernest and has a very real, and mischievous, friend called Algernon. 

When Algernon arrives at Jack’s country house claiming to be Ernest, only a handbag and an ageing governess can put an end to the ensuing chaos.
