The University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) opened its new CCMONSTAGE Play Series with Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan. Dubbed “smart, funny” by the San Francisco Chronicle, this 19th-century satire connects with modern audiences with its biting criticism of a hypocritical society.
“The play examines a time when reputation, gossip and social status were made and lost in the ballrooms and drawing rooms of the Victorian home,” says CCM Acting Professor Susan Felder, director of the production. “Social media moved slower, but it was still as rampant, reactive and harsh as a Twitter account.”
The play opens with plans for Lady Windermere’s coming of age party at 21 years old, but a rumor that her husband is having an affair with a mysterious woman taints the celebration. As she navigates through the Victorian double standards for men and women, Lady Windermere develops an altered understanding of what it means to be “respectable” and “good.”
Lady Windermere’s Fan was Oscar Wilde’s first theatrical success. Full of intrigue, secrets and shocking revelations, the comedy features one of the playwrights most famous lines: “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
Cincinnati Magazine named CCM’s production of Lady Windermere’s Fan a “can’t miss” event of Cincinnati’s arts season. Read more about this season’s Play Series in The News Record.
