We start off with The Importance Of Being Oscar a star-studded account of Oscar Wilde’s glittering and controversial career before his trial for homosexual crimes and tragic fall from grace.
Followed by An Ideal Husband which is considered as the Rolls-Royce of English comedies, this entertaining and still topical play brings an act of political sin into the heart of the English home.
The following week is Lady Windermere’s Fan. 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?
Next is A Woman Of No Importance. Directed by Dominic Dromgoole, an American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap join a house party of fin de siècle fools and grotesques.
And lastly, The Importance Of Being Earnest, widely considered as one of the funniest plays in English, Wilde’s much loved masterpiece throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theatre’s most dazzling firework displays.
