Includes exclusive Q&A
Director: Kathy Burke
Stars: Samantha Spiro, Kevin Bishop, Jennifer Saunders
Running time: 130 minutes
We are delighted to let you know that Dominic Dromgoole, Artistic Director of the Oscar Wilde Season, the year-long celebration at London's Vaudeville Theatre, will be joining us for an exclusive Q&A event, prior to the screening of Lady Windermere's Fan.
Dominic not only directed the first play in the series - A Woman of No Importance which we screened in January - but he produced the whole season, bringing together directing and acting talents including Kathy Burke, Eve Best, Jennifer Saunders, Edward Fox, Frances Barber, Sophie Thompson, Susan Hampshire and Kevin Bishop.
Dromgoole's vision for the Wilde season was to present the four great Victorian plays which shocked and redefined British theatre but which still resonate and speak to us today. A passionate champion of writers, Dominic was most recently Artistic Director at Shakespeare's Globe. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to put your questions to one of the UK's leading theatre heavyweights.
This new production of Oscar Wilde’s social comedy, Lady Windermere’s Fan, directed by award-winning writer, actor and director Kathy Burke, and filmed especially for cinemas at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End. 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 Jennifer Saunders as the Duchess of Berwick, making her return to the West End stage for the first time in over twenty years.
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.
Please note that there are no adverts or trailers in our Event Cinema screenings and doors open 15 minutes before the advertised start time.
The Q&A will precede the screening.
