A Woman of no Importance

‘One can survive everything nowadays, except death, and live down anything except a good reputation’

‘Wonderfully moving' (★★★★ The Independent) & 'compelling' (★★★★ The Times), A Woman of No Importance opened Classic Spring’s critically acclaimed Oscar Wilde season in the West End in 2017. Funny and engaging, this bold and richly enjoyable production explores innocence and morality through Wilde’s glittering wit and masterful language.

An earnest young American woman, an unscrupulous English Lord and an innocent young chap join the festivities at a lavish estate in the English countryside. Should a mother tell her son the truth and risk social ruin?

Starring national treasure Liza Goddard alongside Roy Hudd, Isla Blair, Emma Amos and Katy Stephens, don't miss Dominic Dromgoole’s brilliant and assured revival.

Liza Goddard’s extensive stage credits include Lady Windermeres Fan, An Ideal Husband and Alan Ayckbourn’s Season’s Greetings. Her television work includes cult classics Doctor Who and Bergerac.

Roy Hudd’s plethora of work includes ITV’s Broadchurch, Huddlines on the BBC, as well as the West End hit When We Are Married.  

Star of stage and screen, Isla Blair’s credits include House of Cards, Johnny English Reborn and Made in Dagenham.

Household name, John Bett, prior work consist of films such as Shallow Grave and Tamara Drew and the recent television show, BAFTA winner A Very English Scandal.

Emma Amos’ previous roles have taken her from television to stage, starring in Goodnight Sweetheart on the BBC and Sweet Bird of Youth in Chichester.

Katy Stephens’ past stage productions have included Rosalind in As You Like It and the title role in Antony and Cleopatra for the Royal Shakespeare Company.
