'You gave me this fan today; it was your birthday present. If that woman crosses my threshold, I shall strike her across the face with it'

The day of Lady Windermere's birthday party, and all is perfectly in order. Until her friend Lord Darlington plants a seed of suspicion. Is her husband having an affair? And will the other woman really attend the party? 'You gave me this fan today; it was your birthday present. If that woman crosses my threshold, I shall strike her across the face with it' Lady Windermere's Fan is directed by award winning writer, actor and director Kathy Burke.

Classic Spring is a new theatre company, formed by Dominic Dromgoole (former Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre) to celebrate the bold and ground breaking work of proscenium playwrights in the architecture for which they wrote.

Sex, equality, morality and fidelity are all issues currently in the forefront of many people's minds. As part of a year-long celebration of Oscar Wilde, Dominic Droomgoole's Classic Spring theatre company now turn to Lady Windermere's Fan after A Woman Of No Importance. It is something of a relief to see a play that respects the serious themes of power and society's views of the morality of men and women, but yet remains gloriously funny and light hearted.
