“Narrators James Warwick and Alison Larkin take on the roles of all nine characters. Both performers expertly create unique personalities for all the roles. Warwick and Larkin are a delightful combination – get ready to listen and laugh!” —AudioFile Magazine

TV star James Warwick and award-winning narrator/comedienne Alison Larkin star in this accessible, dazzlingly funny two-actor production of The Importance of Being Earnest – a trivial comedy for serious people.

We’re in England in 1895. Algy and Jack are debonair bachelors-about-town who plan to court Gwendolen and Cecily, despite opposition from the formidable Lady Bracknell.

Jack was adopted as a baby, and discovering the truth surrounding his mysterious origins becomes critical to his future happiness.

This co-production between Alison Larkin Presents and Steven Jay Cohen is unique in that it is the first ‘full cast’ audio production performed by two people.

    This brilliant new recording of Oscar Wilde’s most famous play is an absolute delight. I taught Wilde for many years when I was an English professor and I wish I had had this recording at the time. I found it hard to believe that there were only two actors. It truly does sound like a full cast recording and it is a delight from start to finish. In a word, BRAVO!

    WONDERFUL! I LOVE IT! Oh what a pleasure to hear Wilde in the hands of these two performers. Alison Larkin is brilliant as Lady Bracknell and Cecily and her Gwendolyn is very sexy! Warwick is charming and funny – it’s surprisingly moving and I just flat out loved it! Well done!!!
