Lady Windermere’s Fan (Encore Screening) by Oscar Wilde
‘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’
A new production of Oscar Wilde’s social comedy directed by award-winning writer, actor and director Kathy Burke.
Kathy Burke brings together a talented comedic cast including the Olivier Award-winning actress Samantha Spiro as Mrs Erlynne, Kevin Bishop as Lord Darlington and Jennifer Saunders as the Duchess of Berwick.
The second play from the Classic Spring Theatre Company’s Oscar Wilde Season, Lady Windermere’s Fan was filmed live at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End especially for the cinema screen.
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?
First performed in 1892, Lady Windermere’s Fan explores the ambiguity of upper class morality and the fragile position of women in society in the late Victorian era in one of Wilde’s most popular and witty plays.
