“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
The beautiful, aristocratic, Lady Windermere is an adored mother and young wife, whose strong moral code almost causes her own social suicide as she prepares to leave her husband on the suspicion of adultery. Ironically the only one who can stop her is the mysterious Mrs Erlynne whose illicit relationship with Lord Windermere has prompted the imminent downfall of Lady Windermere in the first place. And Mrs Erlynne has a deadly secret - a secret Lady Windermere must never find out if she is to keep her peace of mind and the world she has come to identify with.
A production not to be missed, join us for an evening of the finest upper class debauchery. Lady Windermere's Fan presents the exposition of shocking home truths, the satirisation of societal expectations and Wilde's renowned cutting wit.
