The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde was first performed in 1895.  It is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ to escape burdensome social obligations.

PLOT OVERVIEW  - Mr John (Jack ) Worthing, the play’s protagonist, is a pillar of the community in Hertfordshire, where he is guardian to Cecily Cardew, the pretty, eighteen-year-old granddaughter of the late Thomas Cardew, who found and adopted Jack when he was a baby. In Hertfordshire, Jack has responsibilities: he is a major landowner and justice of the peace, with tenants, farmers, and a number of servants and other employees all dependent on him. For years, he has also pretended to have an irresponsible black-sheep brother named Ernest who leads a scandalous life in pursuit of pleasure and is always getting into trouble of a sort that requires Jack to rush grimly off to his assistance. In fact, Ernest is merely Jack’s alibi, a phantom that allows him to disappear for days at a time and do as he likes. No one but Jack knows that he himself is Ernest. Ernest is the name Jack goes by in London, which is where he really goes on these occasions—probably to pursue the very sort of behavior he pretends to disapprove of in his imaginary brother. And, so the confusion begins......  The play is set in late Victorian times and it is a satire of Victorian values and behaviors; visiting, taking tea, proposing marriage, one’s heritage and class as well as expected behaviors

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde was first performed in 1895.  It is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ to escape burdensome social obligations. The play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Contemporary reviews all praised the play's humour, though some were cautious about its explicit lack of social messages.  High farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play
