Oscar Wilde’s ‘A Woman of No Importance’ is to be broadcast live to the Cornhall in Diss next month,.

The play, which is being broadcast from London’s Vaudeville Theatre, features Olivier Award-winning actor Eve Best as Mrs Arbuthnot and BAFTA-nominated Anne Reid as Lady Hunstanton.

It is being performed by the Classic Spring Theatre Company and directed by Dominic Dromgoole, former artistic director of Shakespeare’s Globe.

Mr Dromgoole said: “Oscar Wilde was a lover of the modern in all its forms, and I’m sure the idea that his plays could now be broadcast live to so many people, in so many places, would have delighted him.

“We are very pleased that these glorious plays are going to reach an even wider audience and have life beyond their runs in the West End.”

The screening takes place on November 28. Tickets are available to buy now at www.oscarwildecinema.com
