Gwendolen and Cecily would happily marry the two young men who propose to them, if only they were both called Ernest. Such is the situation that must be untangled in the play Wilde subtitled “A Trivial Comedy for Serious People.” First produced in London in 1895, The Importance of Being Earnest is widely recognized as one of the finest comedies ever written for the stage, combining hilarious plotting drawing on farce with dazzlingly witty repartee.
