Publisher's Summary

Devilishly attractive Lord Illingworth is notorious for his skill as a seducer. But he is still invited to all the "best" houses, while his female conquests must hide their shame in seclusion. In this devastating drawing-room comedy, Oscar Wilde uses his celebrated wit to expose English society's narrow view of everything from sexual mores to Americans.

Pitch Perfect Performance

This dramatised version of Oscar WIldes' A Woman of No Importance is stunning. I listened to this three times over enjoying the visions that danced so easily in my head as the performers each carried their part to nth degree of perfection.
This play is rich in cultural pearls of wisdom and highlights divide between male and female, between the rich and the poor and working class and it explores the ties that bind people in society and what strengthens and weakens the ties. Love of course triumphs and in a way only the wit and wisdom of Oscar Wilde could produce.
