A Woman of No Importance

Vaudeville Theatre

Hinta/henkilö alkaen € 23.70

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.

Wilde’s marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama create a vivid new theatrical voice.

A Woman of No Importance is directed by Dominic Dromgoole and stars Olivier award winner Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten and Hedda Gabler), Eleanor Bron (Help!, Alfie), William Gaunt (King Lear, The Crucible) and BAFTA nominated Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax).

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 British theatre, and still resonate and refresh today.
