Lady Windermere's Fan Tickets
Keep me updated
We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:
Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan is now playing at London's Vaudeville Theatre, directed by Kathy Burke and guest starring the inimitable Jennifer Saunders.
Oscar Wilde’s comedy about love, betrayals and family is now in the West End as part of a year long season of Oscar Wilde at the Vaudeville. On the day of Lady Windermere’s birthday party, all appears to be going well until a seed of discontent is sown leading Lady Windermere to question her husband’s fidelity.
Award winning actor and director Kathy Burke has assembled an astounding comedic cast. Olivier award winner Samantha Spiro plays Mrs Erlynne alongside Kevin Bishop as Lord Darlington. Actor, writer and comedian Jennifer Saunders has returned to the West End stage for the first time in over two decades to guest star as the Duchess of Berwick. Saunders is best known for the tour de force BBC show Absolutely Fabulous, and its subsequent film, as well as the sketch-show French and Saunders.
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 Importance, De Profundis, The Selfish Giant, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest.

I'm a huge Fan of Lady Windermere
Oscar Wilde Season is underway in London. Playing at the Vaudeville Theatre, Lady Windermere’s Fan is taking its turn, this time directed by the delightful Kathy Burke. Given that this script is well over 100 years old, can it have new life breathed into it? Of course, one draw is the superb Jennifer Saunders, back in the West End after 25 years. It’s got a stellar cast, an inviting venue and of course Ms Burke directing it – what is not to love? I set out below five reasons this needs to be seen before it disappears from the stage.

Lady Windermere's Fan: a charming and funny spectacle
The Vaudeville Theatre’s Oscar Wilde season, a quartet of his best-known plays, opened with Kathy Burke’s production of his 1892 comedy, Lady Windermere’s Fan. It is, in turn, broad, farcical, uproarious and cloyingly sentimental – a Victorian melodrama infused with Wilde’s famous dry wit, that plays today as a quaint and enjoyable museum piece. The writer’s musings on embryonic gender politics and the hypocrisy of high society can be found grafted to the oldest of plots, namely a scandalising family secret.

Classic Spring's Oscar Wilde Season continues to captivate Vaudeville audiences
Now's your last chance to see the "sparkling production" (London Theatre) of Lady Windermere's Fan, directed by Kathy Burke and featuring a "scene-stealing" (The Stage) performance by Jennifer Saunders. The Oscar Wilde season will continue with three more Victorian tales by the late Irish playwright: The Selfish Giant, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest.
