This storyboard does not have a description.
During the scene of the cucumber sandwiches, Algernon tells Jack "Please don't touch the cucumber sandwiches. They are ordered specially for Aunt Augusta." Right after he says that, he takes one of the sandwiches and eats it. This would be situational irony.
When Jack and Gwendolen meet for the first time she tells him "The moment Algernon first mentioned that he had a friend called Ernest, I knew I was destined to love you." Little does she know, his name is not Ernest at this point. This would be dramatic irony because the audience knows something Gwendolen does not know.
At the beginning of Act II, Algernon travels to the country to finally meet Cecily and pose as Jack's brother, Ernest. Cecily says "You, I see from your card, are Uncle Jack's brother, my cousin Ernest, my wicked cousin Ernest." This is another example of dramatic irony because we know his name is not Ernest and he is not her cousin.
Jack arrives in the country just waiting to spread the news about his brother so he says "My brother. Quite dead." Jack does not know that Algernon had just arrived posing as his brother so this is dramatic irony again.
