I said 'Lady' not 'Lake'

AdvantagesA wonderful comedy with all the wit of Wilde.

DisadvantagesRather outdated now

"... In the play, Lady Windermere considers leaving her husband of two years when , because of her eavesdropping, she is convinced of her husband’s infidelity. Although the play is now obviously very dated it is still a very popular play. "THE CHARACTERS" Lord Windermere Lord Darlington Lord Augustus Lorton Mr. Dumby Mr. Cecil Graham Mr. Hopper Parker, Butler Lady Windermere The Duchess of Berwick Lady Agatha Carlisle Lady Plymdale Lady ..."

'I can resist everything except temptation.' - ahh, Mr. WIlde!

Advantages'Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about it.'

Disadvantages-

"...its wit and elegance, and Lady Windremere's Fan is an excellent example of these qualities. The plot of this comedy is centered around a young lady (Lady Winderemere) who suspects her husband of having an affair. Lady Windemere also has an admirer (Lord Darlington), who's a smooth playboy with no clear intention of settling down. Our young heroine is faced with a dilemma! She's had a good upbringing and has always ignored or rejected Lord Darlington's ..." Read review

gentle fun

Advantageseasy to read, funny and quaint

Disadvantagestoo short

"Oscar Wilde was a literary genious. This lovely little play is one of his best, it is very funny, beautifully written and very easy to read. This would be a great introduction for anyone to Oscar Wilde. There is much misunderstanding throughout the play, people have 'shocking' secrets which all come undone, of course the secrets would not be seen as shocking today, but that is part of the delight of Wilde, we can enjoy the innocence and fun, ..."

A sassy minx disrupts the aristocrats

AdvantagesVery funny and a good play

DisadvantagesSometimes need background knowledge to understand all aspects

"...be absolutely awful. Done badly, Lady Windermere, her husband and others seem no more than two dimensional, cut-out characters of those found in higher society of Wilde's era. Mrs.Erlynne becomes an intolerable bitch and Darlington seems ever so creepy. However, done well, one sees a comical and critical take on 'whatever people call Society nowadays', telling an intricate tale of deceit, love, money and scandal. I wont ruin the secrets of the ..."
