A Woman of No Importance
Vaudeville Theatre, London.
Classic Spring is a new theatre company, formed by Dominic Dromgoole (former Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre) to celebrate the bold and ground breaking work of proscenium playwrights in the architecture for which they wrote. Its first offering is an Oscar Wilde Season at the Vaudeville, revolving around his four great Victorian plays, which shocked and redefined the British theatre, and still resonate and refresh today: A Woman of No Importance, Lady Windermere's Fan, An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest. A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap join a house party of fin de siÞcle fools and grotesques. Nearby a woman lives, cradling a long buried secret. Wilde's marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama create a vivid new theatrical voice. 'One can survive everything nowadays, except death, and live down anything except a good reputation.' A Woman of No Importance is directed by Dromgoole and stars Olivier award winning Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten and Hedda Gabler).
A £1.25 restoration levy (collected on behalf of the theatre) appears as part of the ticket cost.
