A Woman of No Importance takes place in a 24-hour period during a house party hosted by Lady Hunstanton at her country estate. The upper echelons of English society mix, mingle and flirt, including Lady Caroline Pontefract (who is on her fourth husband), the witty and ironic Mrs. Allonby and the dandyish Lord Illingworth. Wilde balances these worldly characters with a visiting young American woman, Hester Worsley, who becomes attracted to the earnest Gerald Arbuthnot, soon to become Lord Illingworth's secretary. When Gerald's mother pays a visit, however, the secret of his scandalous parentage will be revealed, and more than one future placed in jeopardy.
