Oscar Wilde Season: Lady Windermere's Fan
A new production of Oscar Wildes social comedy, Lady Windermeres Fan, directed by award-winning writer, actor and director Kathy Burke, and filmed especially for cinemas at the Vaudeville Theatre in Londons West End. Kathy Burke brings together a talented comedic cast including the Olivier Award winning actress Samantha Spiro as Mrs Erlynne, Kevin Bishop as Lord Darlington and Jennifer Saunders as the Duchess of Berwick, making her return to the West End stage for the first time in over twenty years. This is the second play from the Oscar Wilde Season, a year-long celebration of the brilliant Victorian playwright being staged by Classic Spring, a new theatre company led by Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeares Globe.
The day of Lady Windermeres birthday party, and all is perfectly in order. Until her friend Lord Darlington plants a seed of suspicion. Is her husband having an affair? And will the other woman really attend the party? First performed in 1892, Lady Windermeres Fan explores the ambiguity of upper class morality and the fragile position of women in society in the late Victorian era in one of Wildes most popular and witty plays.
