Why See Lady Windermere's Fan?
Part of 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. Second on the docket is this early Wilde gem, Lady Windermere's Fan. A perfectly pitched send up of high society's obsession with reputation that would come to typify his stage work in later years, enjoy this brand new production as directed by Kathy Burke (yes, that Kathy Burke.)
A fantastic cast are on hand to bring their best, led by Jennifer Saunders, who makes her first West End appearance in 20 years! Kevin Bishop, Joseph Marcell and Samantha Spiro join her, with Grace Molony, Joshua James and Ami Metcalf.
One of the great Irish writer's most quotable plays, Lady Windermere is the story of a young aristocrat who discovers her husband may be playing away on the day of her coming of age Birthday Party. A mixture of absurdity and serious emotion, misunderstandings, blackmail and petty gossip, it's a quintessential way to enjoy Wilde for new fans and a welcome classic for those a little older.
