"A Woman of No Importance"

November 20, 2018 to November 24, 2018

By Oscar Wilde

Directed by Niamh Mourton

An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap join a house party of fin de si├Ęcle fools and grotesques. Nearby a wom-an lives, cradling a long-buried secret. First per-formed in 1893, Oscar Wilde's marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama satirised the socially con-servative world of the Victorian upper-class, creating a vivid new theatrical voice which still resonates to-day.
