  1. Ha, I remember The Importance of Being Earnest from English class in high school. 🙂 I think mostly I liked it because we got to watch the 2002 movie, which had Colin Firth of Mr. Darcy fame. 🙂

    1. Ah, yes… Brilliantly cast, wasn’t it? Oddly, I think I’ve seen the play about three times – all different productions. I even auditioned for it once. It’s obviously a very popular piece!
