The Importance of Being Earnest (by Oscar Wilde) is presented by L.A. Theatre Works. This standalone audiobook app combines a professional audio recording with supplemental features for download-once, grab-and-go anywhere enjoyment.This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, that name which inspires absolute confidence. Wildes effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.Includes an interview with director Michael Hackett, Professor of Theater in the School of Theater, Film and Television at UCLA.An L.A.
