Algernon Moncrieff and Jack Worthing uncover they have both been leading dual lives, that is to say they have both been “bunberrying” for pleasure.

Jack lives in the country with his pretty ward Cecily Cardew, but in London he is known only as Ernest and is head over heels in love with Gwendolyn Fairfax. Miss Fairfax’s cousin is Algernon, who,
also under the pseudonym of Ernest goes to the country and in turn falls passionately in love with Jack’s ward Cecily… Confused? Well do try to keep up!

So two attractive bachelors named Ernest, who aren’t… and two beautiful girls who are in love with Ernests’… but who aren’t, however who will be when they are rechristened. But who needs a font when a hangbag plays cupid!

This of course can only mean one thing - Oscar Wilde’s timeless masterpeice.

”You can hardly imagine that I and Lord Bracknell would dream of allowing our only daughter - a girl brought up with the utmost care - to marry into a cloak-room and form an alliance with a parcel”
