A Woman of No Importance
A POST-SHOW TALK WITH SOME OF THE CAST WILL BE TAKING PLACE ON TUE 29 OCT
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, and starring national treasure, Liza Goddard (Bergerac, Doctor Who, Lady Windermere’s Fan) along with the much-loved Roy Hudd (Broadchurch, Huddlines, When We Are Married), Isla Blair (House of Cards, Johnny English Reborn, Made in Dagenham), Emma Amos (Goodnight Sweetheart, Sweet Bird of Youth) and Katy Stephens (As You Like It, Anthony and Cleopatra). This incredible production is sure to provoke laughter and tears wherever it goes.
"Wonderfully moving... Sublimely funny"
"Effortless wit, wisdom and waspishness"
"What a treat. Brilliant… Finds a touching vulnerability under the brittle bon-mots"
"The evening will give you a real lift"
MAIL ON SUNDAY

THE SUNDAY TIMES
