6 Oct - 30 Dec 2017

It is perfectly monstrous, the way people go about nowadays saying things against one behind one's back that are absolutely and entirely true.

OPENING THE OSCAR WILDE SEASON

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.
