Lady Windermere’s Fan
The Mainstage Series
Tongues wag when the tarnished Mrs. Erlynne returns to town, but it’s Lady Windermere who is most scandalized: she suspects her new husband of having an affair with this woman of ill-repute. When she decides to strike back at him with her own unfaithfulness, an unlikely rescuer saves her from the deed and its damage to her reputation. Newly re-conceived by director Alan Stanford, Oscar Wilde’s comic masterpiece time-travels to the 1940’s, where the consequences for breaking the rules of high society are still considerable.
