A Woman of No Importance at the Everyman Theatre

Thursday 5 – Saturday 14 September 2019

Starring Liza Goddard and Roy Hudd

Direct from a sell-out West End season. Opening at the Everyman Theatre pior to a national tour.

An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord and an innocent young chap join a house party of fin de siècle fools and grotesques. Nearby a woman lives, cradling a long-buried secret. In A Woman of No Importance, Oscar Wilde’s marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama created a vivid new theatrical voice. 



A Woman of No Importance was the first production in Classic Spring’s celebrated Wilde season in the West End, and is the first to tour the UK. Directed by Classic Spring’s Artistic Director, Dominic Dromgoole, and starring national treasure, Liza Goddard along with the much-loved Roy Hudd, Emma Amos and Katy Stephens, this incredible production is sure to provoke laughter and tears wherever it goes.



Liza Goddard’s extensive stage credits include Lady Windermere’s Fan, An Ideal Husband, Alan Ayckbourn’s Season’s Greetings and the Everyman Theatre's production of A Passionate Woman. Her television work includes cult classics Doctor Who and Bergerac.



Roy Hudd’s plethora of work includes ITV’s Broadchurch, Huddlines on the BBC, as well as the West End hit When We Are Married. 



Emma Amos’ previous roles have taken her from television to stage, starring in Goodnight Sweetheart on the BBC and Sweet Bird of Youth in Chichester. 



Katy Stephens’ past stage productions have included Rosalind in As You Like It and the title role in Anthony and Cleopatra for the Royal Shakespeare Company.
