New mermaids.
Summary With its author's trademark wit, social satire and outrageous paradox, Wilde's play shows us the destructiveness of gossip and superficial judgement, and examines the ambiguous sexual morality and gender politics at the heart of the British ruling class. Wilde's exploration of adultery results in a sparkling, satirical critique of society, and of the hypocrisy that lurks behind the etiquette and perfect epigrams. 'Lady Windermere's Fan' was first staged in 1892 at the St James Theatre, London
