A Woman of No Importance

Vaudeville Theatre

production closed


For the latest show headed to the Vaudeville Theatre in 2017 we turn our attentions to one of the best known playwrights of the 19th century. Oscar Wilde, whose work continues to inspire new writers and find new fans worldwide, penned a great deal of plays and from 2017 to 2018 they will be celebrated as part of a season of shows presented by the Classic Spring theatre company.

The first of these is A Woman Of No Importance, which kicks of a season that also includes Lady Windermere’s Fan in the New Year. For Oscar Wilde aficionados this will be an unmissable experience and one that will be remembered for years to come.

A Woman Of No Importance has everything one could want from an Oscar Wilde play, with a satirical look at the society of the time at the forefront as a party is assembled. On this occasion the party is thrown by Lady Hunstanton and the titular woman of no importance is Mrs Arbuthnot. The latter attends the party alongside her son Gerald, with other guests including the likes of Lord Illingworth and Hester Worsley. During the course of the show relationships are made clear and secrets are exposed.

The Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End houses the production from October 2017 in a year that brings many top shows to the venue, including Christopher Hampton’s translation of The Mentor and the kids show The Hunting Of The Snark in the summer.

A Woman Of No Importance, starring Eve Best and directed by Dominic Dromgoole, then plays in the latter months of the year from October 2017.
