Worthing has invented a brother, Earnest, whom he uses as an excuse to leave his dull life behind to visit Gwendolyn. Montcrieff decides to take the name Earnest when visiting Worthing’syoung and beautiful ward, Cecily. Things start to go awry when they end up together in the country and their deceptions are discovered.
