Lady Windermere's Fan

Lady Windermere's Fan, A Play About a Good Woman is a four-act comedy by Oscar Wilde, first produced 22 February 1892 at the St James's Theatre in London. The play was first published in 1893. Like many of Wilde's comedies, it bitingly satirizes the morals of society.

The story concerns Lady Windermere, who suspects that her husband is having an affair with another woman. She confronts him with it but although he denies it, he invites the other woman, Mrs Erlynne, to his wife's birthday ball. Angered by her husband's supposed unfaithfulness, Lady Windermere decides to leave her husband for another lover. After discovering what has transpired, Mrs Erlynne follows Lady Windermere and attempts to persuade her to return to her husband and in the course of this, Mrs Erlynne is discovered in a compromising position. It is then revealed Mrs Erlynne is Lady Windermere's mother, who abandoned her family twenty years before the time the play is set. Mrs Erlynne sacrifices herself and her reputation to save her daughter's marriage. The best known line of the play sums up the central theme:

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
— Lord Darlington

Cast and Crew

Sarah Sebourn, Luciano Marazzo, Caleb Courtney and Margaret Dow

The play begins with Lord Darlington visiting Windermere's house. His intention is to reveal a situation to Lady Windermere. The conclusion of Act One emotionally spreads Lady Windermere and Lord Winderemere far apart. Lord Darlington's plot has begun to work in Lady Windermere's mind. The developments of Act Two are much more revealing of Lord Darlington's real intentions with Lady Windermere. Mrs. Erlynne becomes the catalyst for Lady Windermere to doubt her husbands loyalty during her own birthday party at her own house surrounded by her very best friends.
