'One can survive everything nowadays, except death, and live down anything except a good reputation.’
An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap join a house party of fin de siècle 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 is directed by Dominic Dromgoole and stars Olivier Award winning Eve Best (A Moon For The Misbegotten and Hedda Gabler) as Mrs Arbuthnot, and the BAFTA Award-nominated Anne Reid (Last Tango In Halifax) as Lady Hunstanton
