A trivial comedy for serious people, The Importance Of Being Earnest, is where Oscar Wilde's genius unfolds in the unraveling of this joshing rigmarole. Organized by the Hyderabad Film
Club, the classic play takes a jibe at the elite London upper class and its nonsensical ways.

The play is about Algemon, a wealthy young Londoner, who pretends to have a sick friend named Bunbury living in the country. Whenever Algernon wants to avoid an unwelcome social obligation, he makes an ostensible visit to his "sick friend." He calls this practice "Bunburying."

Algemon's best friend Jack, also does some Bunburing as he calls himself Jack in the country and pretends that Earnest is his brother in the city, while in the city, he is Earnest with jack as his brother in the country.Gwendolyn loves Jack only because she thinks him to be Earnest, which she feels, is absolutely the most beautiful name in the world.

A hilarious series of comic misunderstandings follows, as Algernon-as-Ernest visits the country. There he encounters Jack's ward, Cecily, who believes herself in love with Ernest - the non-existent brother she has never met. The play contains many examples of Wilde's unbelievable wit.
