Dominic Dromgoole’s Oscar Wilde Season will be broadcast live to cinema’s.
Dominic’s new theatre company Classic Spring has partnered with More2Screen to undertake the live broadcast from the Vaudeville Theatre.
The first of four plays by the Irish comic master, A Woman of No Importance, will be broadcast live on 28 November 2017, followed by the celebrated Lady Windermere’s Fan on Tuesday 20 March 2018.
Christine Costello, CEO, More2Screen comments: “There’s a huge appetite for live theatre broadcasts from London’s West End and the Oscar Wilde Season will be a very strong offering to our cinema partners for their 2017-18 programme.”
Dominic Dromgoole, Artistic Director of Classic Spring, comments: “Oscar Wilde was a lover of the modern in all its forms, and I’m sure the idea that his plays could now be broadcast live to so many people, in so many places, would have delighted him. We are very pleased that these glorious plays are going to reach an even wider audience and have life beyond their runs in the West End.”
Dominic Dromgoole will personally direct the first play A Woman of No Importance, starring Olivier Award-winning actor Eve Best as Mrs Arbuthnot and BAFTA-nominated Anne Reid as Lady Hunstanton, alongside Eleanor Bron and William Gaunt.
Cinema tickets on sale from 8 September 2017.
A Woman of No Importance runs from 6 October 2017 until 30 December 2017;
Lady Windermere’s Fan runs from 12 January 2018 until 7 April 2018 at the Vaudeville Theatre.
