"A Trivial Comedy for Serious People”, acclaimed as one of the funniest plays ever written. Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Lady Bracknell, of the respectability of his parents and his past. For Jack, however, this is not as easy as it sounds, having started life abandoned in a handbag at Victoria station. When both men create alter egos to transcend the limitations of their lives, a tangled web of misadventure ensues. The rules of respectability are put to the test in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, perambulators, and capacious handbags.
