Publisher's Summary

A Woman of No Importance takes place in a 24-hour period during a house party hosted by Lady Hunstanton at her country estate. The upper echelons of English society mix, mingle and flirt, including Lady Caroline Pontefract (who is on her fourth husband), the witty and ironic Mrs. Allonby and the dandyish Lord Illingworth. Wilde balances these worldly characters with a visiting young American woman, Hester Worsley, who becomes attracted to the earnest Gerald Arbuthnot, soon to become Lord Illingworth's secretary. When Gerald's mother pays a visit, however, the secret of his scandalous parentage will be revealed, and more than one future placed in jeopardy.

    "Perfect performance of a very interesting play."

    A fully enjoyable experience in every way. The actors were marvelous especially Elizabeth Klett as Mrs. Arbuthnot although all the other characters spoke/acted their parts well. Oscar Wilde's satirical views on life were amusing and came to the forefront as the story unfolded. The scenes for the acts were vividly described so that the listener could see as if present in a theater. The play's ending was superb. You will thoroughly enjoy it!
