A Trivial Comedy for Serious People. Written in 1895 it is one of Oscar Wilde’s most famous comedies about romance, social standing, mistaken identity, and cucumber sandwiches.

Men about town Algernon Moncrieff and John Worthing pursue the fair ladies Gwendolin Fairfax and Cecily Cardew and wish to marry them, but matters are complicated by characters the men have invented themselves to escape social activities, not to mention the disapproval of Gwendolin’s mother – the formidable Lady Bracknall.
