Satisfyingly sophisticated silliness reigns in Actors’ Summit’s production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. All of the primary characters speak utter nonsense in this play, and that’s what makes it so charmingly funny. As Wilde pokes fun at the inanely superficial upper class at every turn, director Neil Thackaberry’s core cast of five main characters amply illuminates how preposterously bored the rich are with too much time on their hands.

Actors' Summit's pedestrian production under Neil Thackaberry's stewardship is an ambitious undertaking that falls short. "Earnest" depends on impeccable acting and linguistic skills. In lesser hands it can be tedious and slow moving.
