Oscar Wilde


A Woman of No Important’s Run at Taproot is Extended to March 4.

Oscar Wilde, acclaimed playwright and poet, wrote A Woman of no Importance in 1892, as a satire of the Victorian upper class and as a social commentary on marriage and the roles of women. It was, however, the least successful of his plays, because of its lack of original subject matter and its occasionally unnecessary lengthiness. Yet there is value to find in all of Wilde’s plays, including a playfulness amongst social critique and themes that are still relevant to this day. With a stellar cast, stage, and music production, Karen Lund – producing artistic director at Taproot Theatre –attempts to bring about “a story that makes us both laugh and think”.
