The Importance of Doubting Tom

Schedule

Tuesday, Nov. 8 at 7:00pm

Local actress and filmmaker Vanessa Roman’s years-in-the-making feature debut provides a screwball-comedy take on Oscar Wilde’s classic play “The Importance of Being Earnest.” The film gives the story a distinctly modern twist by setting it in the world of darts, where the competitions mirror the games that lovers play. When Gwen (Amy Holland Pennell) is dumped from what she thought was a happy relationship, she’s shaken and confused — something simply doesn't seem right with Tom’s explanation for the breakup. As she struggles to figure out what secret Tom (Brandon Jack James) is hiding, a dizzying array of complications — mixed identities, lost babies, and multiple deceptions — lead to love and adventure for both Gwen and the large circle of darts-playing friends who regularly congregate in Blueberry Hill.
