After the Ball, a musical by Noel Coward based on Oscar Wilde's Lady Windermere's Fan, makes its American Premiere at the Irish Repertory Theatre. Directed and designed by Tony Award Winner Tony Walton, After the Ball is set in London 1899 at the turn of the century--and Oh, what a century it's been! Queen Victoria still reigns supreme as the Creme de la Creme gather at the home of Lord and Lady Windermere in Hyde Park for a brilliant soiree, the ball of the season! But amidst the warmth of the gaslights, the swirling ballgowns and the outrageous flirting from behind flashing fans, a secret lurks and betrayal rears its ugly head. Noel Coward's enchanting musical adaptation takes up where Oscar Wilde leaves off and Lady Windermere's honor is severely tested
as home and duty clash dangerously with passion and compromise.
