A Woman of No Importance

A Woman of No Importance

Classic Spring is a new theatre company, formed by Dominic Dromgoole (former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre) to celebrate the bold and ground-breaking work of proscenium playwrights in the architecture for which they wrote. 

Its first offering is an Oscar Wilde Season at the Vaudeville, revolving around his four great Victorian plays, which shocked and redefined British theatre, and still resonate and refresh today. On sale now A Woman of No Importance and Lady Windermere’s Fan, coming soon is An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest.

Booking from: Friday, 6th October 2017
Booking until: Saturday, 30th December 2017

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.

‘One can survive everything nowadays, except death, and live down anything except a good reputation’

A Woman of No Importance is directed by Dominic Dromgoole and stars Olivier award winning Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten and Hedda Gabler), Eleanor Bron (Help!, Alfie) and William Gaunt (King Lear, The Crucible)
