About this play...

As the alluring Lady Windermere busily prepares for her birthday celebration, she is dazzled by the gift of a unique and beautiful fan from her apparently adoring husband.

Very shortly, her beloved fan becomes the very thing that may shatter her idyllic marriage. As the rumors swirl, she has her suspicions validated by an unpleasant discovery - she must not betray her panic as she figures out what to do next. Can this marriage be saved by the very same mysterious woman who has become the centerpiece of London’s high society gossip scene?
