Lady Windermere has her suspicions that her husband of just under two years is having an affair with another woman. After he denies her allegations, she decides to invite the woman in question to her 21st birthday party. As anger takes over, Lady Windermere's Fan tells of a marriage marrs by lies and secrecy. 

Oscar Wilde's comedy is set in 19th century London, and sees Wilde poke fun at the social upper classes, and their moral attidues, of the period. It's a play about relationships and infidelity  in English high society. 

Lady Windermere's Fan premiered at the St James's Theatre in 1892, and lead to Wilde eventually writing the play A Woman of No Importance for the theatre's actor-manager Herbert Beerbohm Tree.
