Two young society women fall in love with two men because their first names are Ernest, and those two gentlemen, whose first names are in fact not Ernest, both pretend it to be so …Written in 1895, this comedy/farce was intended as a satire on Victorian society’s hypocrisies, the silliness of ‘correct’ behavior, and idleness in the lives of the English upper classes. The author’s uncommon wit and depth of perception makes what he wrote then ring totally fresh, funny, and edgy even today.
