Enjoy an outdoor performance by the Crescent Theatre of Oscare Wilde's classic tale, in the glorious surroundings of the Selly Manor garden. Bring along a picnic and enjoy summer evening entertainment.

'I can resist everything except temptation.'

Lady Windermere has a happy marriage. Or, at least, that's what she believes, until one of London society's gossips, the Duchess of Berwick, arrives to voice her suspicions about an affair Lord Windermere appears to be having...

Employing the witty dialogue, social satire and outrageous paradox for which he is still remembered, Lady Windermere's Fan was Wilde's breakthrough stage hit. The play shows us the destructiveness of gossip and superficial judgement, examines the ambiguous sexual morality and gender politics at the heart of the British ruling class, while simultaneously challenging our perceptions of what constitutes a 'good woman'.

Performances of this production take place on both Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th July, starting at 7pm each evening.

Tickets are available via the Crescent Theatre website, and cost £14 for adults or £12 for concessions. 

This is an outdoor production with no cover so please be prepared for whatever the weather is on the day. The performance will continue regardless of weather, unless it becomes dangerous for the performers or audience. 

You are welcome to bring your own outdoor chairs and picnic blankets. We have some seating available but please call us on 0121 472 0199 to reserve this in advance.

We will be serving refreshments on the day. You are welcome to bring along your own snacks or a picnic. The site will be open from 6pm.

The performances take place in the Selly Manor garden. There are no steps and it is a level surface. If you would like to know more or discuss accessibility then please call the Selly Manor Museum team on 0121 472 0199.
