Drama Classics: The World’s Great Plays at a Great Little Price
Oscar Wilde’s undying comedy – in an edition to fit any handbag.
Jack Worthing pretends to be Earnest to avoid certain social obligations. But Gwendolen has fallen in love with him as Earnest – and he with her. Quizzed as to his origins by her aunt Lady Bracknell, Jack has to admit to being found in a handbag. After further complications involving Jack’s friend Algernon, who is also passing himself off as Earnest, Jack’s true origins are revealed.
With an introduction by Dan Rebellato.
