Oscar Wilde’s witty comedy, A Woman of No Importance, will be broadcast live to selected cinemas nationwide on Tuesday 28 November at 7.15pm from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End.
Starring Olivier award-winner Eve Best and BAFTA-nominated actress Anne Reid, this new and critically acclaimed production is directed by Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe, and is the first play from the Classic Spring Theatre Company’s Oscar Wilde Season.
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 satirised the socially conservative world of the Victorian upper-class, creating a vivid new theatrical voice which still resonates today.
