Dromgoole's revival takes the mothballs out of the melodrama.

Buy Tickets For A Woman of No ImportanceBuy Tickets


Former Artistic Director of the Globe Dominic Dromgoole heads a new year-long season in celebration of Oscar Wilde with his new theatre company Classic Spring. Opening the event is A Woman of No Importance starring the delightful Olivier-winning Eve Best. An upper-class satire that could only have come from the pen of Wilde, secrets and lies collide at a posh country house party in a melodrama that impresses with wit and wisdom.

Following a cast of aristocrats, each with their own ambitions, A Woman of No Importance centres on the innocence of Gerald Arbuthnot, a young man on the up who is on the cusp of a new career with the consummate bachelor Lord Illingworth. As wine flows and rumours grow bigger, a truth comes out that pits Gerald against a glittering future or the love for his wronged mother.
