A drama of great importance

A SUMPTUOUS new production of Oscar Wilde's classic comic melodrama A Woman of No Importance plays at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford from February 25 to March 2.

The production, directed by the acclaimed Elija Moshinsky, sees the very welcome return of Kate O'Mara (pictured) to the Yvonne Arnaud, in the role of Mrs Arbuthnot, the eponymous Woman of No Importance.


Starring alongside Ms O'Mara are Oliver Tobias as Lord Illingworth, Deborah Grant as Mrs Allonby and Josephine Tewson as Lady Hunstanton.

A Woman of No Importance, Wilde's ruthless observation of British society, is witty and incisive.


Laced with some of his most celebrated epigrams, including the priceless observation that "one should never trust a woman who tells one her real age - a woman who would tell one that would tell one anything", this play is Wilde at his most dazzling.

Tickets cost from £11-£23.50. Call the box office on 01483 440000.
