Classic Spring have confirmed further casting for the upcoming production of Lady Windermere’s Fan at the Vaudeville Theatre from the 12th January 2018.
It has been announced Samantha Spiro and Kevin Bishop will be joining the cast of Kathy Burke’s production of Lady Windermere’s Fan, joining the previously announced Jennifer Saunders who will be playing the Duchess of Berwick.
The production will see Samantha Spiro plays Mrs Erlynne. Her previous stage credits include performances in The House They Grew Up In (Chichester Festival Theatre), The Taming of the Shrew (Shakespeare’s Globe) and Chicken Soup with Barley (Royal Court). She won the Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical for Merrily We Roll Along at the Donmar Warehouse.
Meanwhile, Kevin Bishop will play Lord Darlington. His previous stage credits include a one-man show, Fully Committed, at the Menier Chocolate Factory, and Once In A Lifetime at the Young Vic.
Further casting for the production will be announced soon.
The day of Lady Windermere’s birthday party, and all is perfectly in order. Until her friend Lord Darlington plants a seed of suspicion. Is her husband having an affair? And will the other woman really attend the party?
‘You gave me this fan today; it was your birthday present. If that woman crosses my threshold, I shall strike her across the face with it’
Lady Windermere’s Fan will play as part of Classic Spring’s year long Oscar Wilde season at the Vaudeville Theatre, which will open with a production of Dominic Dromgoole’s production of A Woman of No Importance, which begins previews on Friday 6 October.
