HEADLINE: The Theatre Department of City College of San Francisco presents Oscar Wilde’s Social Comedy Lady Windermere’s Fan. The play will be performed at City College’s Diego Rivera Theatre.

WHAT: Lady Windermere's Fan: Lady Windermere's Fan is a social comedy, or a comedy that looks at the social norms, expectations and mannerisms of a time period. It is also a satire, or a piece that uses humor to criticize a situation. Written by the famous and infamous, Oscar Wilde, the play was first put on in London in 1892. Wilde is satirizing the upper class and moral attitudes (or lack thereof) of that time period. In the play, the usual tropes of mistaken identity and lost child found are never resolved, and it's implied that characters don't really change.
