Storyboard Text

  • Act 1: Situational Irony
  • Please don't touch the cucumber sandwiches. They are order specially for Aunt Augusta.
  • Act 1: Verbal Irony
  • "Divorces are made in Heaven"
  • Act 2: Dramatic Irony
  • You, I see from your card, are Uncle Jack's brother, my cousin Ernest.
  • Algernon tells Jack not to eat the cucumber sandwiches because he wants them to be saved for Aunt Augusta. However, Algernon ends up being the one who eats them all.
  • Act 2: Dramatic Irony
  • Your brother Ernest dead?
  • Quite dead.
  • Both these gentlemen have expressed a desire for immediate baptism.
  • When Algernon says "Divorces are made in Heaven", this goes against the notion that marriages are made in heaven. Using the opposite of marriage makes this verbal irony.
  • Act 3: Situational Irony
  • I don't think that, as things are now, it would be of much practical value to either of us, Dr. Chasuble.
  • Algernon goes to Shropshire to meet Cecily and pretend his is Ernest. Since Cecily doesn't know he really is Algernon and not Ernest, yet the audience knows, then this is dramatic irony.
  • Act 3: Situational Irony
  • Jack tells Miss Prism and Chasuble that his brother Ernest has died. What they don't know that the audience does know is that he doesn't actually have a brother named Ernest. Jack also does know Algernon is at his house posing as Ernest.
  • Now that the women know Jack and Algernon's true identities, the men no longer want to be baptized because they no longer need to change their names to Ernest.
  • Jack finds out that his real name is actually Ernest. That means that the whole time when he thought he was lying to Gwendolen about being named Ernest, he was telling the truth the whole time.
  • I always told you, Gwendolen, my name was Ernest, didn't I? Well, it is Ernest after all. I mean it naturally is Ernest.
