On the morning of his wife's twenty-first birthday, Lord Windermere gives her, as a token of his love, a beautiful present - a fan. However, she is to find out that her love is not as secure as she once believed. Who is the strange Mrs Erlynne and what is her husband's involvement with her? Within the structured confines of London 'society', Oscar Wilde creates a witty cartoon of morality and double standards. In twenty-four hours the happiness of Lord and Lady Windermere teeters on the precipice of scandal and disaster. Coloured with rakish young fops, innocent daughters, scheming mothers and bumbling gentlemen, lady Windermere's Fan is Oscar Wilde's classic comedy of manners, hidden identities and mistaken understandings.Performers Vanessa Redgrave, Joely Richardson, Jack Davenport, John McCallum, Googie Withers, David Yelland, Peter Gordon, Roger Hammond, Robert Hands, Richard Laing, Amanda Shillabeer, Clare Swinburne.
