A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE (play)
Ends 30th December 2017.
An American young woman encounters 19th Century English high society. The house
party is a swamp of gossip and pecking orders... who will marry "right"?
Oscar Wilde play, directed by Dromboole as the opening play in a season.
Not available. Professional reviewers are pretty unanimous in their "3 star"
ratings of this. The agreement is that Ms Best, Anne Reid, Eleanor Bron and
Dominic Rowan shine in an otherwise unremarkable revival. The trouble is that it
takes a long two acts to get anywhere much. Meanwhile the stage is cluttered on
a too-large set for 16, though Ann Reid's scene-changing covers are noted.
The wisdom of a year of Wilde plays is questioned, more so opening with this
particular one, not considered nearly his best either. On the plus side, there
are still a few laughs and familiar quotations, and it's done with both heart
and expertise. As a signifier of things to come, and a chance to see a rarely
produced play in the West End, it serves its purpose seems to be the verdict.
