Storyboard Text

  • ACT 1 -verbal irony-
  • Please don't eat the cucumber sandwiches! They are for my Aunt Augusta
  • ACT 1 -situational irony-
  • ...the truth isn't quite the sort of thing one tells to a nice girl.
  • Did you tell Gwendolen the truth?
  • ACT 2 -dramatic/situational irony-
  • My brother.. dead!
  • Your brother Ernest! He arrived about half an hour ago!
  • Joyful tidings!
  • This is verbal irony, because right after Algernon says to not eat all of the sandwiches, Jack begans to scarf them down, and there are no sandwiches left.
  • ACT 2 -dramatic irony-
  • ...Algernon?
  • This is situational irony, because Algernon questions if Jack has told the truth to Gwendolyn about how he has "2 personas."
  • ACT 3 -situat irony-
  • You are the son of my poor sister, and consequently Algernon's elder brother.
  • This scene is both dramatic and situational irony because Jack comes home to the country to announce Ernest's passing, but "Ernest" is actually alive inside with Cecily.
  • ACT 3 -dramatic/situational irony-
  • In this scene, it is dramatic irony because Cecily finds out that Algernon is lying to her. He says his name is Ernest, she finds out it isn't, and then he admits that his name is Algernon after all.
  • My name isn't really Ernest at all, in fact, it's Algernon
  • This scene is situational irony because Lady Bracknell hears Miss Prisms name. Based off of this she comes out to tell Jack that his mom is her poor sister, consequently making him Algernon's brother.
  • Algy's elder brother!!
  • This scene is both dramatic irony and situational irony. This is because as everyone stands around speaking of Jack's origin, he looks in a book to come to find out, the entire time his name was Earnest.
  • Well, it is Ernest after all. I've now realized for the first time in my life, the vital importance of Being Earnest
