Yale Rep: "A Woman of No Importance"

"In 1895, the year that saw the debut of Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, the playwright lost everything when he was convicted of “gross indecency” and sentenced to two years in prison. A Woman of No Importance had premiered two years earlier and anticipated the forces that would strike him down. Of British society, he said, “To be in it is merely a bore. To be out of it is simply a tragedy.”"

The Yale Rep production is directed by James Bundy and runs March 21 to April 12, 2008
