You saw Jennifer Saunders on TV this Christmas, now's your chance to win tickets to see her on stage!
Lady Windermere's Fan is the second production in the critically acclaimed Oscar Wilde season by Classic Spring, a new theatre company formed by Dominic Dromgoole (former Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre) to celebrate the bold and ground breaking work of proscenium playwrights in the architecture for which they wrote.
Award-winning director Kathy Burke (The Quare Fellow and Once a Catholic) has brought together a talented comedic cast for Lady Windermere's Fan. Samantha Spiro, playing Mrs Erlynne, won an Olivier Award for her performance in Merrily We Roll Along at the Donmar Warehouse. Kevin Bishop will play Lord Darlington, having recently starred in one-man show Fully Committed at the Menier Chocolate Factory and Once In A Lifetime at the Young Vic.
Comedian, screenwriter and actor Jennifer Saunders stars as the Duchess of Berwick, marking her return to the West End stage for the first time in over twenty years. Jennifer is best known for writing and starring in the sketch show French And Saunders and the BBC sitcom Absolutely Fabulous, which won international acclaim, a BAFTA and an Emmy.
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?
"You gave me this fan today; it was your birthday present. If that woman crosses my threshold, I shall strike her across the face with it."
Lady Windermere's Fan is playing at the Vaudeville Theatre from 12 January to 7 April. For more information and to book your tickets (from £19.50) call 0330 333 4814 or visit nimaxtheatres.com
