The first of Oscar Wilde’s brilliant social comedies, Lady Windermere’s Fan combines shrewd satire of Victorian high society with the witty and intelligent dialogue that distinguishes Wilde as one of the greatest comedic writers of all time. Suspecting her husband of infidelity with a woman of “ill repute,” Lady Windermere decides to strike back at him through her own unfaithfulness. An unlikely rescuer prevents her from this deed and its damage to her reputation, revealing the heart of the misunderstanding as well as the workings of the Victorian upper class.
