A Woman Of No Importance

Oscar Wilde Season kicks off with a wonderfully witty comedy

Article Published on 22.11.2017

Broadcast live from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End, this new, classically staged, and critically acclaimed production of Wilde’s comedy is the first play from the Classic Spring Theatre Company’s Oscar Wilde Season.

Olivier Award-winner Eve Best and BAFTA-nominated actress Anne Reid star in A Woman Of No Importance, a witty comedy about an earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap who 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.
