Some go to great lengths in order to keep their respectability and still have their fun.
Jack and Algernon are two such people. They each have an ‘imaginary friend’ that frequently calls them away from their day to day life. Jack’s is a non-account brother named Ernest that pulls him from the responsibility of his ward and country estate and Algernon’s is an ailing neighbor named Bunbury that pulls him to the country and away from his aunt. Once away they each assume the identity of their ‘imaginery friend’.
All goes well until Jack asks Algernon’s cousin for her hand in marriage and finds that she only loves him because his name is Ernest. While eavesdropping on the proposal Algernon find himself with some interesting information about Jack’s personal life and decides to intercede.
Will either of them make it through without revealing their secrets?
It’s been years since I’ve read Wilde, and I must say, that I still love him as much as I did as a teen. I can’t help but to laugh out loud at the sarcasm, cynacism, and plays on words that encompass his writing. Take some time and get wild about Wilde!
