We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:

A Woman of No Importance tickets are now available for the show that opens a season of Oscar Wilde shows at the Vaudeville Theatre.

This classic Oscar Wilde satire of upper-class English society is full of the comic melodrama Wilde is so well-known for. A Woman of No Importance tells the story of house party at the country home of Lady Hunstanton but things take a turn when Gerald Arbuthnot’s appointment as Lord Illingworth’s secretary is announced. Suddenly the past has reappeared in a very concrete way and Gerald’s mother is having a difficult time justifying standing in the way of her son’s appointment. This show deals with issues of wealth, status, and gender and how they impact our characters.

The show is directed by Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe, and will feature Olivier Award winner Eve Best (Hedda Gabler, A Moon for the Misbegotten) Eleanor Bron (Help!, Alfie), William Gaunt (The Crucible, King Lear), and BAFTA nominee Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax).

Former artistic director of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre Dominic Dromgoole’s new theatre company, Classic Spring, is presenting a yearlong season of Oscar Wilde plays, centring on his Victorian plays. The season includes A Woman of No ImportanceLady Windermere’s Fan De ProfundisThe Selfish Giant, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest
