Importance of Being Earnest. Friends Jack Worthing and Algernon
Moncrieff concoct elaborate deceptions to engage their love interests,

King Lear tells the story of a great monarch on the verge of
dividing his kingdom among his three daughters. When he puts them to the test
of having to prove their love for him, he doesn’t hear what he wants to hear,
and the family begins the painful process of breaking apart. Eventually, the
once great king loses all he held dear. Legendary author George Benard Shaw
noted, “No man will ever write a greater tragedy than Lear."
