A glorious comedy of mistaken identity, the play ridicules codes of propriety and etiquette. Men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. Matters are complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on-the-sly activities — not to mention the disapproval of Gwendolen's mother, the formidable Lady Bracknell.
