Following a critically acclaimed run at the Kings Head Theatre, Oscar Wilde’s celebrated classic Lady Windermere’s Fan transfers to the Tabard Theatre.
Young, rich, beautiful and happily married, Lady Windermere has it all. Until her husband invites a mysterious widow to her 21st birthday ball. Who is she? Why is she there? What is their secret? Suddenly everything that Lady Windermere holds dear is in jeopardy. Nothing is as it seems in this satirical thriller, full of intrigue, jealousy and Oscar Wilde’s famous, inimitable one-liners.
This new version, updated to the 1930s, is presented by Ruby in the Dust and directed by Linnie Reedman.
