A Woman of No Importance

The end of 2017 brings a season of celebrated shows to the Vaudeville Theatre as Dominic Dromgoole and Nica Burns’ Classic Spring theatre company stages four fantastic works from Oscar Wilde.

A Woman Of No Importance is the first production to appear as part of the Oscar Wilde season, with Dromgoole himself directing the production and Eve Best starring. With shows like Lady Windermere’s Fan and The Importance Of Being Earnest promised as the season progresses this will be the perfect time for the Irish playwright’s fans to head to the West End.

It is a busy year for the venue, with The Mentor amongst the shows already on offer in 2017, and now Oscar Wilde will see the year out with more to present in 2018 as well. Once again we will see solid proof that his work remains as important to modern audiences as it did to those first seeing it in the late 19th century.

A Woman Of No Importance emerged in 1893, with its premiere taking place in the West End and its story delving into an upper class party set in the contemporary times. The party is thrown by Lady Hunstanton and is attended by the likes of Lord Illingworth, Gerald Arbuthnot, his mother Mrs Arbuthnot (the titular woman of no importance) and Hester Worsley and during the course of the show we will see the hypocrisies of society presented to us as complex relationships are depicted and secrets bubble away.

To call A Woman Of No Importance a show with many fans would be an understatement and in the time since it was first seen it has been adapted on numerous occasions, sometimes to the screen and other times to radio.

As such some big names have taken on the lead roles and on this occasion one of them will be Eve Best, who has numerous credits to her name and won a Laurence Olivier Award for Hedda Gabler at the Duke of York’s Theatre just over a decade ago. Her work includes Antony & Cleopatra at Shakespeare’s Globe and The Duchess Of Malfi at the Old Vic Theatre.

And now she teams up with Dominic Dromgoole to tackle the work of Oscar Wilde as A Woman Of No Importance runs at the Vaudeville Theatre from Friday 6th October 2017.
