Category:  Drama

Overview:  A satire on Victorian values.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “The precursor to today’s romantic comedies, this is a laugh out loud romp through the manners of 19th century England.  I think this play is simply hilarious and I laugh every time I read it.”

Ethan: “I never grow tired of seeing The Importance of Being Ernest. Wilde’s wit, humor, and play with language comes around only a handful of times in a millennium, and nowhere is it on better display than this play.”
