Multi-award-winning actor, director, comedian and playwright Kathy Burke directs hilarious marital comedy Lady Windermere’s Fan in Classic Spring's Oscar Wilde season.
Bringing together a talented comedic cast from Burke's previous work on Absolutely Fabulous and Psychobitches, Lad Windermere's Fan stars Samantha Spiro and Kevin Bishop, with Jennifer Saunders guest starring as the Duchess of Berwick in her return to the West End stage.
‘You gave me this fan today; it was your birthday present. If that woman crosses my threshold, I shall strike her across the face with it.’
The day of Lady Windermere’s birthday party, and all is perfectly in order. Until her friend Lord Darlington plants a seed of suspicion. Is her husband having an affair? And will the other woman really attend the party?
Kathy has previously starred in Gary Oldman’s film Nil by Mouth, for which she won Best Actress at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, as well as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Dancing in Lughnasa, Absolutely Fabulous and French and Saunders. She has directed at many of London’s leading venues, including the Donmar Warehouse, the Royal Court and the Hampstead Theatre.
