Descrizione dell’editore

Enhanced ebook edition of The Importance of Being Earnest featuring a full cast audio performance of the play, starring James Marsters as

Jack.


This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken

lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, “that name which inspires

absolute confidence.” Wilde’s effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English

language.

The ebook also features an interview with director Michael Hackett, Professor of Theater in the School of Theater, Film and Television at UCLA and Chair of the Department of Theater.

By merging text and audio, this is a perfect learning tool for enhancing comprehension and enjoyment. The text includes plot summaries of

each scene, and it is highly recommended as a study aid for students, teachers, actors and directors. Widely read in high school and college,

The Importance of Being Earnest is a text exemplar of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts.

Includes scene-by-scene and word-for-word text and audio of L.A. Theatre Works’ full cast performance starring:

James Marsters as Jack
