Sharmill Films presents

Olivier Award Winner Eve Best (The King’s Speech) and BAFTA-nominated actress Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax) star in this new classically staged production of Oscar Wilde’s comedy, directed by Dominic Dromgoole (former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe).

An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap join a house of fin de siècle fools and grotesques. Nearby, a woman lives cradling a long-buried secret.

First performed in 1893, Oscar Wilde’s marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama satirised the socially conservative world of the Victorian upper-class, creating a vivid new theatrical voice which still resonates today.

Captured live at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End and screened at Riverside.
