Amidst the Victorian opulence of London, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, both young gentlemen craving excitement, lead double lives to escape monotony. Responsible Jack poses as his imaginary brother “Ernest” in pursuit of urban adventure, while Algernon employs the ruse of “Bunburying” for rural escapades. Romantic entanglements ensue when they both fall for captivating ladies who demand suitors named “Ernest.” This charming comedy unfolds in a whirlwind of mistaken identities, witty exchanges, and concealed truths, inviting you into a world where dual lives collide, and hearts and secrets are put to the test.


The Boise Bard Players is a mobile, minimalist non-profit theatre company based in Boise, ID making Shakespeare and other classics economically and emotionally accessible. We perform in unconventional locations to bring the Bard to the people.
