Double lives abound in Oscar Wilde's peerless comedy. At its centre is a man who is Ernest in the town, and Jack in the country, whose decadent friend Algernon uses a false alibi for regular disappearances, and whose young ward Cecily records a parallel existence in her diary. Others escape, routinely, into a sensational world of fiction. For all the glittering epigrams of Wilde's creation, it's most subversive and effervescent conceit is to show characters living a lie until it finally becomes true.
