|Lady Windermere's Fan at The Tabard Theatre|
A version of Oscar Wilde's play, set in the 1930s
Following a critically acclaimed run at the King's Head Theatre, Oscar Wilde’s celebrated classic Lady Windermere’s Fan, updated to the 1930s, transfers to the Tabard Theatre from September 23 to October 11
Directed by Linnie Reedman with Music arranged by Joe Evans, the show is presented by the Ruby In The Dust theatre group.
LADY WINDERMERE’S FAN was the playwright’s first big hit and when it premiered in London in 1892 it catapulted him to success.
Lady Windermere’s Fan play was first published in the 1890s. Like many of Wilde’s comedies it bitingly mocks society’s morals and continues to be relevant in whatever decade it is presented. It differs from his other ‘comedies’ in that it exemplifies Wilde’s most successful dramatic technique: the mixing of the comic and the serious, which makes it an inherently more interesting piece than his later, more popular plays.
Directed by Linnie Reedman it is set against the backdrop of the popular songs of the1930s.
.“Ruby In The Dust have created an interpretation that brings Wilde’s
“A solid version of a witty play that grapples with some surprisingly meaty issues"
“Wilde Times in the thirties...a twinkly sense of fun”
