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 captured live at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End and then screened in Laemmle cinemas. Kathy Burke brings together a talented comedic cast including the Olivier Award-winning actress Samantha Spiro as Mrs. Erlynne, Kevin Bishop as Lord Darlington, and guest starring Jennifer Saunders as the Duchess of Berwick, marking her return to the West End stage for the first time in over twenty years. 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.

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.

Captured live at the Vaudeville Theatre, London on March 20, 2018.
Staged by the Classic Spring Theatre Company.
