A Woman of No Importance - 2017 - West End


An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap join a house party of fin de siecle fools and grotesques. Nearby a woman lives, cradling a long buried secret. Wilde's marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama create a vivid new theatrical voice.

A Woman of No Importance West End Cast

Dominic Dromgoole's new company Classic Spring kicks off its year-long celebration of Oscar Wilde with lesser-known 1893 work A Woman of No Importance. A starry cast, led by the incandescent Eve Best, makes a strong case for the play, though Dromgoole's reclaiming of Wilde in the proscenium arch theatre space for which he originally wrote is more of a mixed affair.
