Lady Windermere's Fan


Oscar Wilde

Directed by: Edna Garner

16th - 20th May 1989

It is 1892, the aesthetics and arts and crafts movements have made their imapct. Morals and manners are changing as the world moves from the equipoise of the 1850's to the unease following the recessions of the 1870's. Into this world steps Lady Windermere, a throw-back to more understandable and circumscribed times. However, it is not only she but all the characters in this play who are forced to ask questions about goodness, morality and reality.
