Without apologies to Oscar Wilde, this delightful comedy dares to fill us in on what happened to Gwendolyn, Cecily, Jack and Algernon after the final curtain of The Importance of Being Earnest

It is 1933 and Algy and Gwen have been married and living a cozy middle class life in London for 34 years. In all this time, they have not seen and have had no desire to see Cecily and Jack who is now known as Ernie. Now, Cecily has written to tell Gwen that they are coming to visit. Why after all these years?

This question is at the core of the mysterious hilarity that abounds in this boisterous, witty, literate and highly entertaining sequel
