Staged by the Classic Spring Theatre Company, the Oscar Wilde Season will be broadcast live to Atelier from the Vaudeville Theatre in the heart of London’s West End by Event Cinema distributor More2Screen. Opening with the live broadcast of A Woman of No Importance on Tuesday 28 November 2017, the season will continue with the celebrated Lady Windermere’s Fan on Tuesday 20 March 2018, followed by An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest later in 2018.
Classic Spring is the new theatre company from Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe. The company’s first season is a year-long celebration of the late genius Wilde, one aiming to provide a much fuller picture of the man and the artist, revealing this much-loved but complex playwright as the brilliant renegade he was in his own time.
Dominic Dromgoole will personally direct the first play A Woman of No Importance, starring Olivier Award-winning actor Eve Best as Mrs Arbuthnot and BAFTA-nominated Anne Reid as Lady Hunstanton, alongside Eleanor Bron and William Gaunt.
