One thought on “Montford Park Players stages ‘The Importance of Being Earnest,’ May 4-26


    Opening night, The Importance of Being Earnest brought up the very best of what summer productions in the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre can be: cool nights, great actors, excellent pacing and staging that can’t be beaten! These guys really rocked the very witty play by Oscar Wilde. With more laughs than a Saturday Night Live set, this is live performance at its best. A perfect blend of actors, casting, stage production and amazing timing, this is the real deal by NC’s oldest outdoor Shakespeare company, where amateur exceeds professional. If you like witty satire, you will love this play running now through the end of May!
