Whether you're a fan of Oscar Wilde's classic play or just love comedy, this fairly faithful adaptation is sure to prove hilarious! Set in England during the late 1800s the story revolves around two women inexplicably enamored with the name Ernest and the two men who decide to take the name for different reasons. Catching the eyes of the fair ladies however is not all there is to this as there is also the formidable, social climbing and moral Lady Bracknell to contend with. Mix-ups and high comedy ensue as everyone finds the importance of being both Ernest and earnest.
