Lady Windermere's Fan

2017 and 2018 sees the Vaudeville Theatre become the home of Oscar Wilde as four of his shows make their way to the West End. One of them, Lady Windermere’s Fan, is set to appear at the venue from January and it does so with some impressive talent working behind the scenes.

Kathy Burke, the comedian and theatre director, will tackle Wilde’s 1892 play and it certainly has a lot to offer the acclaimed practitioner. With its set-up of alleged infidelity and the twists and turns that take it to its surprising ending, it is certainly a show that will provide plenty for her to sink her teeth into, and for audiences to relish from curtain-call.

The story focuses on the character of Lady Windermere and the complications that arise at her birthday party when she confronts her husband in regards to his alleged infidelity with a Mrs Erlynne. He naturally denies it but invites her to the party, adding to the drama Windermere decides to leave him with more twists, turns and revelations emerging as the play goes on, taking Lady Windermere’s Fan to its shocking conclusion.

With characters like Lord Windermere, Lord Darlington, Lord Augusts Lorton and Lady Agatha Carlisle, amongst others, this has an array of memorable personalities and as a result it has clearly stood the test of time across the 20th century and beyond, with numerous musical, film and television adaptations under its belt.

So who better than Kathy Burke to bring it to life in the West End? Best known for her television comedy work, which includes popular shows like Harry Enfield’s Television Programme and Gimme Gimme Gimme, amongst many others, she has also carved out a successful career as a playwright and theatre director. Her directing credits include Once A Catholic at the Tricycle Theatre, Smaller at the Lyric Theatre and The God Of Hell at the Donmar Warehouse, amongst others.

And now she directs Lady Windermere’s Fan at the Vaudeville Theatre as part of an Oscar Wilde season that also includes A Woman Of No Importance, which is directed by Dominic Dromgoole, whose new company Classic Spring presents the run.

Lady Windermere’s Fan is the second show to appear in the season when it begins performances at the Vaudeville Theatre on Friday 12th January 2018.
