Oscar Wilde: A Woman of No Importance (U)

Recorded encore of the acclaimed season of Oscar Wilde classics from the Classic Spring Theatre Company
Olivier award-winner Eve Best and BAFTA-nominated actress Anne Reid star in this new classically staged production of Oscar Wilde’s comedy directed by Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe. The first play from the Classic Spring Theatre Company’s Oscar Wilde Season, A Woman of No Importance was filmed live at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End especially for the cinema screen.

‘One can survive everything nowadays, except death, and live down anything except a good reputation’
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. First performed in 1893, Oscar Wilde’s marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama satirised the socially conservative world of the Victorian upper-class, creating a vivid new theatrical voice which still resonates today.
