"The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde, one of the most successful playwrights in his day, was first publicly performed in 1895. As suggested by the play's subtitle, "A Trivial Comedy for Serious People," Wilde created a witty and satirical play poking fun at manners while at the same time shedding light on Victorian morals and hypocrisy. Wilde's play continues to please audiences today, on stage as well as via musical adaptations and film versions.
