"An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all. e?? Oscar Wilde

In Wilde's classic comedy of manners, elegant repartee masks a sharp satire of Victorian "morality. eThough Wilde often claimed that art should be trivial, Earnest mocks the rigid performances of class, gender and sexuality that society (still) expects us to play. Witty, fun, and slyly subversive, The Importance of Being Earnest still rocks the house.
