Event Description:

‘One can survive everything nowadays, except death, and live down anything except a good reputation.’

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 Shakespeare’s Globe. The first play from the Classic Spring Theatre Company’s Oscar Wilde Season, A Woman of No Importance was broadcast live to cinemas from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s 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 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 satirized the socially conservative world of the Victorian upper-class, creating a vivid new theatrical voice which still resonates today.

There will be one 15-minute intermission.
