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

More Wilde Quotes
12 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To augment the quotes mentioned by above user Howard Schumann, I would add my own favourite Wilde quote from this play, "We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking up at the stars".After seeing a semi-pro version of this play in August 2013, this sumptuous 1985 version has all the hallmarks we have come to expect of BBC costume drama.Amazing attention to detail shown in the set construction (circa 1890), costumes, makeup etc were all evident including a cast of very professional actors, actresses, back stage staff including the direction, everything we have come to expect from BBC costume drama (e.g.the miniseries, Pride & Prejudice 1995).I obtained my DVD version of this production entitled "The Oscar Wilde Collection" Vol.2 (along with "An Ideal Husband" with Keith Michell, Dinah Sheridan and Margaret Leighton).I awarded "Lady Windermere's Fan" 9/10.Well done!
