Who is this Earnest guy, and whats so important about him?
Attending Lake Oswego Junior High Schools production next week, The Importance of Being Earnest, would clear up any confusion about Oscar Wildes iconic comedic play, set in England in the 1890s.
The protagonists name is actually Ernest, not Earnest. Well, not at first. Justice of the peace and landowner Jack Worthing also an eligible bachelor creates an imaginary, pleasure-seeking, trouble-making little brother, Ernest. The short of it is the woman he loves likes the name, he discovers it actually is his name and Jack/Ernest learns honesty is the best practice: Ive now realized for the first time in my life the vital Importance of Being Earnest.
