Lady Windermere's Fan Tickets

Lady Windermere’s Fan arrives at the Vaudeville Theatre early next year as part of the extraordinary Oscar Wilde Season. Directed by Award-winning writer, actor and director Kathy Burke (The Quare Fellow and Once a Catholic) this amusing, fast-paced drama is resplendent with social intrigue and compelling turn of the century characters.

The Vaudeville Theatre plays host the exciting Oscar Wilde Season, curated by the Award-winning Dominic Dromgoole, with tickets on sale now. Amongst the Victorian gems is Lady Windermere’s Fan, directed by the award winning Kathy Burke, director, comedian and playwright, this engrossing social drama embraces Wilde’s witty examination of dramatic family schisms and affairs of the heart.

The play revolves around Lady Windermere’s twenty-first birthday. A shadow is cast across the jubilant occasion when Windermere receives word that her doting husband is having an illicit affair. Her investigations come to a melodramatic head when she discovers the real truth behind her husband’s deceit.

Former Artistic Director of the Globe, Dominic Dromgoole, has confirmed plans for his new theatre company Classic Spring which will produce the piece. The company’s goal is to honour the revolutionary and innovative work of proscenium playwrights within the theatres they loved.

Olivier Award-winning actress Samantha Spiro (Guys and Dolls, Hello Dolly, Merrily We Roll Along) stars as Erlynne, opposite comedian and television star Kevin Bishop as Lord Darlington. French and Saunders' Jennifer Saunders guest stars as the Duchess of Berwick, having previously worked alongside Kathy Burke in Absolutely Fabulous.

Further casting includes Joseph Marcell as Lord Lorton, Grace Molony as Lady Windermere, Joshua James as Lord Windermere and Ami Metcalf as Agatha and Rosalie.

Lady Windermere’s Fan will be staged as part of the Oscar Wilde Season at the Vaudeville Theatre. The piece will be presented alongside some of Wilde’s most groundbreaking Victorian plays that shook the foundations of British theatre, given bold new life by Dromgoole’s company.

Tickets are also available for other staged works in the season including A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest. Lady Windermere’s Fan will play at the Vaudeville Theatre from the 12th January to 7th April 2018.
