Lady Windermere's Fan: A Play About a Good Woman is a four act comedy by Oscar Wilde, published in 1893. As in some of his other comedies, Wilde satirizes the morals of Victorian society, and attitudes between the sexes.

The action centres around a fan given to Lady Windermere as a present by her husband, and the ball held that evening to celebrate her 21st birthday. (Summary by Ruth Golding)

Reviews

Great play

(4 stars)

I have read this play before but listening to the full cast recording was a great way to revisit it. I appreciate all the time and effort taken by these volunteers! I did have some issues with a few of the male voices. In particular, Mr. Hopper's voice sounded as if he was speaking in a tin can.

A light hearted twisted tale well rendered

(4 stars)

all the readers have done an exceptional job. Just that the voice of Mr Windermere was a little muffled. Thanks for delightful listen!
