This play is excellent especially if you like Oscar Wilde and how could you not? Just a terrific production. If you're looking for something to see that won't let you down - go!!

LOVED the play,Lady Windermere's Fan. Before the show a member of the production spoke about the play and people could ask questions.

Attended a very interesting and informative backstage tour - highly recommended. We visited behind the stage, under the trap, in wardrobe, and in dressing rooms. Great guides who are passionate about the theatre and its worth. The main Festival Theatre is beautiful with its walls of wood, and the Studio Theatre is intimate and intense.

Best show we have seen at Shaw. We took in Enchanted April which is lighter and fun and also Guys and Dolls - also a great production. But, Lady Windermere had a great set, costumes, and superb acting.

We saw Lady Windermere's Fan, a play by Oscar Wilde. The play and acting were wonderful, as was the theatre itself.
