Publisher's Summary

Here is Oscar Wilde's most brilliant tour de force, a witty and buoyant comedy of manners that has delighted millions in countless productions since its first performance in London's St. James' Theatre on February 14, 1895. "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.

Great Deal!

I liked that the reader, Brian Kelly, shares who is speaking each time they speak. It was really easy to follow and he did a great job with the voices. I couldn’t believe that it was so reasonably priced. Thank you! Really funny play.

Would reread in physical format

I liked this play and its way with words, but would probably prefer reading it.
