A Woman of No Importance

October 28 - November 2

5
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 (Stage: Lady Windermere’s Fan, An Ideal Husband, Season’s Greetings. TV: Doctor Who and Bergerac), along with the much-loved Roy Hudd (Stage: When We Are Married. TV: Broadchurch, Huddlines) , Isla Blair (House of Cards, Johnny English Reborn and Made in Dagenham) Emma Amos (Stage: Sweet Bird of Youth. TV: Goodnight Sweetheart) and Katy Stephens (As You Like It and Anthony and Cleopatra), this incredible production is sure to provoke laughter and tears wherever it goes.
