Oscar Wilde Season Live: A Woman of No Importance
BUY TICKETS 7.15pm Tuesday 28 November
PLAY broadcast LIVE from the Vaudeville Theatre, London
Eve Best and Anne Reid star in this new production of Oscar Wilde’s glittering and witty comedy directed by Dominic Dromgoole, and classically staged at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End.
Olivier award-winner Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten and Hedda Gabler) and BAFTA-nominated actress Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax) star in this new classically-staged production of Oscar Wilde’s comedy, the first play from the Classic Spring Theatre Company’s Oscar Wilde season, 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 of fin-de-siècle fools and grotesques. 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-class, creating a vivid new theatrical voice which still resonates today.
