The Importance of Being Earnest is both Oscar Wilde's most important and funniest play. As the subtitle suggests there is more to this play than its farcical nature suggests. Wilde calls into question the nature of identity while poking fun at proper British manners and the aristocracy. Even after one hundred years, The Importance of Being Earnest continues to be the standard by which all other farces are judged.
