Storyline

Lord Windermere appears to all - including to his young wife Margaret - as the perfect husband. But their happy marriage is placed at risk when Lord Windermere starts spending his afternoons with an adventuress who is working her way through London's high society, Mrs. Erlynne. Worse, Windermere gives her big sums of money. To crown it all he asks his wife to invite the detestable woman to her own birthday party. Upset and outraged, the puritan Lady Windermere decides to leave her husband and goes to Lord Robert Darlington, who has been courting her for some time. Unfortunately she leaves her fan - the one Robert offered her for her birthday - in Robert's house... Written by Guy Bellinger

Some Wilde plot twists here
5 December 2003 | by (Arkansas USA) – See all my reviews

This play demonstrates Oscar Wilde's genius at the character development of his players. An excellent job of acting with plenty of meat to chew on. It starts with Lady Windermere receiving a fan for her birthday and then, with some help from friends, begins to suspect her husband of infidelity. That's when Oscar begins twisting things. Delightful -- You must get this one.
