Oscar Wilde’s A Woman Of No Importance will be broadcast live at Weston-super-Mare’s Odeon at the end of November.

London’s Vaudeville Theatre is opening its Oscar Wilde season with the play, starring Olivier Award-winning Eve Best (Hedda Gabler) as Mrs Arbuthnot and Anne Reid (Last Tango In Halifax).

The 1893 play satirises English upper class society, and follows a group of guests at a lavish party.

Wilde’s story explores class, family and double standards as the guests grapple with unexpected visitors and selfish actions.

Dominic Dromgoole, the artistic director, said: “Oscar Wilde was a lover of the modern in all its forms, and I’m sure the idea his plays could now be broadcast live to so many people, in so many places, would have delighted him.”

A Woman Of No Importance will be shown at the Odeon in Weston and the Ritz Cinema in Burnham on November 28 at 7.15pm.
