Lady Windermere's Fan - Vaudeville Theatre

Back in July we first got word on Kathy Burke’s upcoming production of Lady Windermere’s Fan, which is set to run at the Vaudeville Theatre this January as part of the ongoing Oscar Wilde season.

Oscar Wilde’s 1892 play appears as part of a season that has also included A Woman of No Importance, also at the Vaudeville Theatre, which continues at the venue presently and ends before the year is out.

The big name in that production is Eve Best, but for the next production it is director Kathy Burke, and she will be directing an impressive cast of performers when the show opens in January.

Gracy Molony is amongst the newly announced cast members, appearing in the production alongside Joshua James, Joseph Marcell, Victoria Blunt, Natasha Magigi, Ami Metcalf, Charlie Mulliner, Siân Polhill-Thomas, Matthew Darcy, Roger Evans, David O’Reilly, Benedict Salter and Gary Shelford.

Previously, we also learnt that Samantha Spiro, Jennifer Saunders and Kevin Bishop will be a part of the cast.

Grace Molony is a newcomer who already has stage and screen experience ahead of her appearance as title character Lady Windermere at the Vaudeville Theatre. She appeared as Kate in the Country Girls at the Chichester Festival Theatre this year, has previously appeared in the BBC series Doctors, and will play the role of Dorothy Stafford in 2018’s film Mary Queen Of Scots, which also stars Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie.

Lady Windermere, the character, is celebrating her birthday in Lady Windermere’s Fans. Ahead of her birthday party complications arise as she confronts her husband in regards to his alleged infidelity with a Mrs Erlynne. Though he denies it, Windermere invites her to the party anyway, creating drama as the show propels along with further twists, turns and revelations.

Oscar Wilde penned the play in the 1890s and it was first staged in 1892 on both sides of the Atlantic. It has since been adapted on numerous occasions across the 20th century, including as far back as 1916, when it was adapted as a silent film.

And now it comes to the Vaudeville Theatre with a West End run that begins on Friday 12th January 2018.
