In what may be the most perfectly funny play ever written, Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest dazzles with ironic wit, comic invention, razor-sharp subtlety, and bold servings of humor. Ernest is in love with Gwendolyn, but when it is revealed that both Ernest and his best friend Algernon are not entirely who they appear to be, a madcap comedy of close calls and hilarious revelations ensues. At the same time, Wilde’s genius suggests an odd surface world of the privileged class, oblivious to the world around them. Taking Wilde’s cue, this production moves the action to colonial India, where the British characters carry on their antics in a strange new setting, but one where they are equally oblivious, equally in love, and equally funny.
