Casey to play Lady Stutfield in 'A Woman of No Importance' at Sacred Fools Theatre!

I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be playing Lady Stutfield in A Woman of No Importance at Sacred Fools Theatre for two performances:

  • Saturday, December 6th at 8pm
  • Sunday, December 7th at 3pm

Tickets are available online here.

This is my favorite Oscar Wilde play because it critiques gender inequality in such a clever way. By mocking women's issues at the turn of the 20th century, Wilde shines a comedic spotlight on the problems we faced - and, in some cases, continue to face - in our society. It has been interesting working on the play in the wake of GamerGate. Over a hundred years after the suffragette movement, we still face terrible threats and abuse for even daring to speak out.

I'm very grateful to Geoffrey Wade for his invaluable training in Shaw, Wilde and Coward at Antaeus Theatre. His class and his private coaching were priceless to me, and I feel so lucky to be cast in a Wilde play so soon after.

I am really enjoying the direction of Armina LaManna, who is truly a master (mistress?) of physical comedy, and I can't wait to get up on stage!

Hope to see you there!
