“A Woman of No Importance” is an 1893 play in four acts by Oscar Wilde. First performed at the Haymarket Theatre in London, it represents a razor-sharp satire of England’s aristocratic society in the late nineteenth century. Exceedingly witty and highly enjoyable, “A Woman of No Importance” is highly recommended for theatre lovers and those who have enjoyed other works by Wilde. Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854–1900) was an Irish poet and playwright who became one of the most popular in London during the 1880s and 1890s. Well-known for his sharp wit and extravagant attire, Wilde was a proponent of aestheticism and wrote in a variety of forms including poetry, fiction, and drama. He was famously imprisoned for homosexual acts from 1895 to 1897 and died at the age of 46, just three years after his release. A fantastic play brimming with Wilde’s trademark wit not to be missed by fans of his seminal work. Other notable works by this author include: “Picture of Dorian Gray” (1890), “Salome” (1891), and “The Importance of Being Earnest” (1895). Read & Co.
