The curtain went up on Trivial Muffins' inaugural production, The Importance of Being Earnest (Oscar Wilde), five years ago. To celebrate our anniversary, we are reviving this masterful comedy with a renewed set and magnificent costumes.

Two young bachelors, Jack and Algernon, want to gain the love of Gwendolen and Cecily. To win the heart of the ladies — but mainly to get away for a weekend — each man assumes an alias. But when their aliases end up a bit too similar, confusion, chaos, and comedy ensue.
