Jack loves Gwendolen. Algernon loves Cecily. The women, too, are in love, with men they believe to be called Ernest – “that name that inspires absolute confidence.”

The four lovers find themselves together in the country, snared in romantic entanglements only the sharp wit of Oscar Wilde could devise and resolve.
