" 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.

Strange but entertaining
Strange to read a book in script form but it does lend to visualising the scene. Funny old time humour and quick story
Witty and “Wilde”
I never read any of Wilde’s works until this one. Delightful and full of hidden sarcasm. Need to read again and again to derive all of his hidden critiques of late 19th century society and Victorian age
Witty and fun!
