‘You gave me this fan today; it was your birthday present. If that woman crosses my threshold, I shall strike her across the face with it’
The day of Lady Windermere’s birthday party, and all is perfectly in order. Until her friend Lord Darlington plants a seed of suspicion. Is her husband having an affair? And will the other woman really attend the party? ‘You gave me this fan today; it was your birthday present. If that woman crosses my threshold, I shall strike her across the face with it’ Lady Windermere’s Fan is directed by award winning writer, actor and director Kathy Burke.
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.
