Story

John “Jack” Worthing loves NYC and Gwyn Fairfax, and he can have both when he assumes the name of his made-up brother, Ernest. When Agernon, “Algy” (John’s best friend) falls in love with Cecil (John’s ward), he too decides to take on the name of Ernest. With John pursuing one man and Algy pursuing another, Lady Bracknell (who happens to be Gwyn’s mother) slowly unravels the odd strings of potential matchmaking. Of course, with two men and one name they share, what follows is a mess of imaginary identities, good natured gossip, and ridiculous romance. The Importance of Being Earnestly LGBTQ+ brings Oscar Wilde’s “trivial comedy for serious people'' to contemporary times with new laughter, color and heart.
