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 siècle fools and grotesques. Nearby a woman lives, cradling a long-buried secret. In A Woman of No Importance, Oscar Wilde’s marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama created a vivid new theatrical voice.

A Woman of No Importance was the first production in Classic Spring’s celebrated Wilde season in the West End, and is the first to tour the UK.

Directed by Classic Spring’s Artistic Director, Dominic Dromgoole.

Starring announced Emma Amos(Goodnight Sweetheart/Still Open All Hours), Isla Blair (Grantchester/The History Boys), Liza Goddard (Bergerac/Wild West)  Roy Hudd (When We Were Married/ Huddlines) and Katy Stephens (As You Like It/Antony and Cleopatra – RSC ) will be John Bett (Scenes from an Execution/A Very English Scandal), Rachel Essex (The Deal/The Edge of Love), Tom Jude (Wilde Experience/The Sherlock Holmes Experience), Georgia Landers (Anna/Antony and Cleopatra – NT), Mark Meadows (Orpheus Descending/Quiz)  and returning members from the original cast Meg Coombs (The Provoked Wife/Measure for Measure), Tim Gibson (Ways of Seeing), Will Kelly (Lovesong/The Suppliant Women) and Paul Rider (Wise Children).
