Win 1 of 7 pairs of tickets to Oscar Wilde’s A Woman of No Importance at the Vaudeville Theatre

Over a century after his death, the works of renowned Irish author and playwright Oscar Wilde continue to resonate with audiences. In particular his four great Victorian plays, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, Lady Windermere’s Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest, which shocked and redefined British theatre, are revisited time and again. Former Artistic Director at Shakespeare’s Globe, Dominic Dromgoole, has recently formed a new theatre company called Classic Spring, which celebrates the ground-breaking work of proscenium playwrights and stages their plays in the theatres they wrote for. The company also explores how the change that the writers effected in their own day still applies today. Its first offering will be an Oscar Wilde Season premiering with A Woman of No Importance which is now playing at the Vaudeville Theatre.

First performed in 1893, Wilde’s marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama created a vivid new theatrical voice. 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. Innovatively re-imagined and directed by Dominic, the play stars Olivier Award-winning Eve Best, Anne Reid, Eleanor Bron and William Gaunt. A Woman of No Importance will run until 30th December, followed by Lady Windermere’s Fan from 12th January to 7th April, and coming later in the year, An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest.
