ONE of Oscar Wilde’s most famous plays will be coming to the Wokingham Theatre later this month – and the show is so popular that some dates have already sold out.
Lady Windermere’s Fan is a comedy of errors and class and focuses on what happens when the play’s titular heroine accuses her husband of having an affair. However, the lady she thinks her husband is dallying around with has a deeper secret she’s hiding – one that will shake the family’s foundations to the core.
Although the subject matter is dark, Wilde’s famous wit makes the play sparkle and shine with a mix of great one-liners and amusing moments.
The Wokingham Theatre will be performing the comedy of errors from Wednesday, July 15 to Saturday, July 25.
The Tywford Road theatre has limited tickets left, and the run kicks off with a special charity performance in aid of Debra.
The charity supports individuals and families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) – a painful genetic skin blistering condition which, in the worst cases, can be fatal. Money raised by this evening of comedy and drama will enable DEBRA to offer specialist care and support to individuals and families affected by the condition and will help in the search for effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for EB.
This special performance of Lady Windermere’s Fan at Wokingham theatre, which for all other performances is currently sold out, promises to be a delightful mix of late Victorian manners and morality and Oscar Wildes sparkling way with words.
The play has some of Wilde’s most quotable quotes including, “I can resist anything but temptation”.
Debra is very grateful to Wokingham Theatre for offering this opportunity to raise valuable funds.
Tickets are only £10 to include a programme and free parking. Full Bar available.
This is the last play at the Theatre before the summer break.
The 2015-2016 season starts with the Neil Simon play Last of the Red Hot Lovers, which will be performed from September 10 to 16.
