Publisher Description

" The Importance of Being Earnest" is celebrated not only for the lighthearted ingenuity of its plot, but for its inspired dialogue, rich with scintillating epigrams still savored by all who enjoy artful conversation. From the play's effervescent beginnings in Algernon Moncrieff's London flat to its hilarious denouement in the drawing room of Jack Worthing's country manor in Hertfordshire, this comic masterpiece keeps audiences breathlessly anticipating a new bon mot or a fresh twist of plot moment to moment. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

Differences from the movie

1. Jack's father's name is Earnest.

2. Lady Bracknell has her part a little bit reduced in the movie.

3. The debt-collection theme and scenes do not exist in the drama.

4. Jack is interviewed by Lady Bracknell at Algi's place and not at her's. Consequently there are no other candidates or ringing of bells.

5. The movie overplays Algi's insolvency.

6. Miss Prism doesn't run around in circles when she comes across Lady Bracknell at Jack's place.

7. No hot air balloons or any stuff of the kind in the drama.
