Algernon Moncrieff (Michael Denison) has discovered that he has a secret in common with his friend Jack Worthing (Michael Redgrave) – they both use alter-egos when in a tight spot. However, when Algernon decides to pose as Jack’s alter-ego – a brother from London – for a weekend in the country, he finds that Jack’s cousin Cicely (Dorothy Tutin) has developed an infatuation with the mysterious brother; and now she can meet him. Meanwhile, Algernon’s cousin Gwendolyne (Joan Greenwood) is also staying for the weekend and knows Jack as his alter-ego. Confused?

Anthony Asquith directs the first screen adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy.
