Oscar Wilde’s A Woman of No Importance at the Vaudeville Theatre.
‘One can survive everything nowadays, except death, and live down anything except a good reputation’
Dominic Dromgoole presents his Oscar Wilde Season at London’s Vaudeville Theatre featuring Wilde’s four great Victorian plays A Woman of No Importance, Lady Windermere’s Fan, An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest.
Tony nominated and Olivier Award winner Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten, Hedda Gabler, Nurse Jackie) returns to the West End following her acclaimed performance in Trevor Nunn’s production of Love In Idleness.
A Woman of No Importance runs from 6 October 2017 until 30 December 2017 at the Vaudeville Theatre.
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.
Wilde’s marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama create a vivid new theatrical voice.
Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten, Hedda Gabler, Love In Idleness, Nurse Jackie) will star as Mrs Arbuthnot, Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax) as Lady Hunstanton, Eleanor Bron as Lady Pontefract, and William Gaunt as the Venerable Archdeacon Daubeny.
Emma Fielding, Dominic Rowan, Crystal Clarke, Harry Lister-Smith, Sam Cox, William Mannering, Paul Rider and Phoebe Fildes.
Written by Oscar Wilde, directed by Dominic Dromgoole with design by Jonathan Fensom and lighting by Ben Ormerod.
