Set in late 19th century London and Hertfordshire England, the play tells the story of the affluent gentleman, Jack Worthing, who
will do just about anything to avoid the responsibilities of his prominent social standing — even invent a fictitious brother, Earnest. When Cecily Cardew and Gwendolen Fairfax both fall in love Earnest, hilarity ensues as Jack and his confidant, Algernon Montcrieff do everything they can to conceal the truth about Earnest
