Oscar Wilde Live by Satellite: A Woman of No Importance

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 Wilde’s comedy directed by Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeare͛s Globe. The first play from the Classic Spring Theatre Company͛s Oscar Wilde Season, A Woman of No Importance will be broadcast live to Whale Theatre from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End (155 mins).

An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap 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 Wilde͛s 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.
