This famous play is one of the finest English comedies. Algernon knows that his friend Jack does not always tell the truth. For example, in town his name is Ernest, while in the country he calls himself Jack. And who is the girl who gives him presents 'from little Cecily, with all her love'? But when the beautiful Gwendolen says that she can only love a man called Ernest, Jack decides to change his name. Then Cecily agrees to marry Algernon, but only if his name is Ernest, too, and things become difficult for the two young men.
