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.

Just plain enjoyable.

Oscar Wilde's works are always fun to listen to, and this dramatised version is no exception. Relax and enjoy his witty take on society.

thoroughly enjoyable performance

This is the first dramatisation I have listened to, I usually just listen to audio books. However, I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be looking for more. The cast were great. I laughed and smiled all the east through.

Too screechy for me

Samantha Mathis is one of my favourite actresses, and I really wanted to enjoy this, but I didn't like the screechiness of the other actresses voices. As a result, I only got half way through. This was probably exacerbated by the fact that I was listening while commuting, so I had to have the volume up quite loud, I might try again in a quieter environment.
