The world-famous comedy on FX Salda wrote that it was "a farce through and through parodistická, extraordinary verve and comic power, the most characteristic of Wilde's play, perfect in its genre ..."
The game, subtitled A trivial comedy for serious people revolves around a misunderstanding that causes John (Jack), who performs in London under the pseudonym Philip and to his country estate is known as the brother of Philip, but whom no one has seen. The country also Algernon arrives and goes for Philip, that Jack's brother ...
Escapades aphorisms, bon mots, epigrams, ambiguous statements, sparkling irony, derision is the result of "... unreal fantasies, showing the world that lost focus" (Norbert Kohl). The comedy is irreverent assault on Victorian morality, especially on its seriousness, which is shown as sheer ridiculousness (the importance of being Ernest - the importance of being earnest, ie. Earnest).
