A Woman of No Importance

by Oscar Wilde

Wed 12th - Sat 15th October 2011 in The Main House
12th - 14th at 7.30pm, 15th at 5.00pm, Matinee: 14th at 2.30pm

Oscar Wilde, the king of wit, brings us a crisp slap on the face of the hypocritical society that exists in late 19th century England. 

It includes all the banter, sly innuendo, commentary and verbal farce that Wilde is remembered for. Unlike The Importance Of Being Ernest, another of Wilde's plays of modern life, A Woman of No Importance, first staged in 1893, has a serious edge to it. It exposes society's double standards in its treatment of women at the time and is a witty commentary on class. The biting satire does not dim the moving story of an unmarried mother who is brought to ruin by a faithless peer. 

This searing observation of Victorian society is filled with memorable quotes and epigrams to leave you celebrating both the craft and genius.
