Event Details

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 Wildeís comedy directed by Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeareís Globe. The first play from the Classic Spring Theatre Companyís Oscar Wilde Season, A Woman of No Importance was broadcast live to cinemas from the Vaudeville Theatre in Londonís West End on 28th November 2017.
An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap join a house party of fin de siËcle fools and grotesques. Nearby a woman lives, cradling a long-buried secret. First performed in 1893, Oscar Wildeís marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama satirized the socially conservative world of the Victorian upper-class, creating a vivid new theatrical voice which still resonates today.
“One can survive everything nowadays, except death, and live down anything except a good reputation” – Oscar Wilde
