Oscar Wilde Season LIVE: A Woman of No Importance
Olivier award-winner Eve Best (Hedda Gabler) and BAFTA-nominated actress Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax) star in this new classically staged production of Oscar Wilde’s glittering comedy directed by Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe.
An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap join a house party. Nearby a woman lives, cradling a long-buried secret. First performed in 1893, Oscar Wilde’s marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama satirised the socially conservative world of the Victorian upper-classes.
The first in a season of four Oscar Wilde plays from the Classic Spring Theatre Company.
