What's the point in having a wicked past if you're going to keep it secret?

Oscar Wilde's play A Woman of No Importance is an audacious drama of social scandal that centres around the revelation of Mrs Arbuthnot's long-concealed secret. A house party is in full swing at Lady Hunstanton's country home, when it is announced that Gerald Arbuthnot has been appointed secretary to the sophisticated, witty Lord Illingworth. Gerald's mother stands in the way of his appointment, but fears to tell him why, for who will believe Lord Illingworth to be a man of no importance?

A Woman of No Importance was first performed in April 1893 at the Haymarket Theatre, London.

This edition in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series is edited and introduced by Emma French.

A Woman of No Importance is also available in the collection Wilde: Four Plays.
