“I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.”
― Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

Importance of Being Earnest Asheville NCOver the years, this raucous comedy has proven to be our most popular non-Shakespeare show. Last presented some time back at Asheville’s Masonic Temple, this year we’re doing it under the stars!

Earnest will be directed by John Preston Mendenhall, last seen in MPP’s Othello. He’s got a great cast to work with, too. Montford stalwarts Will Storrs, Haven Volpe, Scott Bean and Sonia Rose D’Andrea head up this group of all-stars. (See full cast list below.)

We hope you’ll start your summer right with a trip to the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre. It’s funny, it’s frivolous, and, as always with MPP productions, IT’S FREE!
