Oscar Wilde Season Live: Lady Windermere's Fan Click to enlarge

‘You gave me this fan today; it was your birthday present. If that woman crosses my threshold, I shall strike her across the face with it’

A new production of Oscar Wilde’s social comedy, Lady Windermere’s Fan , directed by award-winning writer, actor and director Kathy Burke, will be broadcast live to cinemas from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End. This is the second play from the Oscar Wilde Season, a year-long celebration of the brilliant Victorian playwright being staged by Classic Spring, a new theatre company led by Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe.

Starring Jennifer Saunders (French and Saunders, Absolutely Fabulous) as the Duchess of Berwick, marking her return to the West End stage for the first time in over 20 years. Samantha Spiro, who won an Olivier Award for her performance in Merrily We Roll Along at the Donmar Warehouse, plays Mrs Erlynne, with Kevin Bishop featuring as Lord Darlington.

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? And will the other woman really attend the party? First performed in 1892, Lady Windermere’s Fan explores the ambiguity of upper class morality and the fragile position of women in society in the late Victorian era in one of Wilde’s most popular and witty plays.

Running time: 150 minutes
