Publisher's Summary

A wonderfully charming recording available for the first time as a digital download.

Jack Worthing lives in the country with his budding young ward Cecily Cardew and her fusspot governess, Miss Prism. To escape his situation, Jack invents a brother named Ernest who lives in London and frequently needs him. When in London, Jack then poses as Ernest. This elaborate fabrication proceeds smoothly - until Jack/Ernest falls in love and his fiancée’s mother discovers there is more – or, rather, less – to him than meets the eye.

“It is exquisitely trivial, a delicate bubble of fancy and it has its philosophy; that we should treat all trivial things of life seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality.”
—Oscar Wilde
