A sequel to The Importance of Being Earnest. Chronicles the adventures of the two famous couples from Oscar Wilde's famous comedy.  It is now 1933 when England and they, have fallen on hard times. A penniless Cecily and Ernest arrive unexpectedly on the doorstep of Gwen and Algernon's humble London abode.  Panic ensues as this wild comedy of intertwining plots races to its farcical conclusion.
