PICT Theatre Presents LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN, Now thru 7/27
by BWW News Desk - Jul 11, 2013

Renowned Oscar Wilde expert Alan Stanford, PICT's interim Producing Artistic Director, will direct his adaptation of the great Irish playwright's comedy, Lady Windermere's Fan. Wilde's play, first produced in 1892 in London, satirizes the morality of Victorian society.

This production, which runs tonight, July 11 through July 27, is PICT's third show of the season, and features a cast of 17 actors. (more...)
