Summary
  • The importance of being earnest: In 19th century England, two roguish bachelors unwittingly use the same pseudonym for their romantic activities
  • The real thing: Henry may be the wittiest playwright of his generation, but he's hopelessly naive when it comes to understanding love and infidelity. Writing about betrayal is one thing, living with it is another. After Henry leaves his wife for another woman, he's confronted with being the cuckold himself
