Jack Worthing has a situation-- he is Ernest in town and Jack in the country. Little does he know, being Ernest is a very sought after position. Jack’s love, Ms. Gwendolen Fairfax, reveals to him that it has always been her dream to love someone named Ernest.

Thus, let the most earnest Ernest be Ernest!
