See Anne Reid on stage in the West End

Anne Reid, who played Ken Barlow's wife Valerie in Coronation Street, is taking to the West End stage in A Woman of No Importance, the first production in a year-long Oscar Wilde season.

A Woman of No Importance will run at the Vaudeville Theatre in London from 6th October to 20th December 2017.

Oscar Wilde’s play is about members of the English upper classes who attend a party at a countryside estate. The guests include a widow, her son, and an American visitor.

Anne Reid will play Lady Hunstanton, who is holding the party at her estate.

Although Anne is probably best known for playing Valeria Barlow in Coronation Street in the 1960s, she also starred in the sitcom Dinnerladies in the late 1990s. She was nominated for a Bafta TV Award for her role as Celia in the BBC series Last Tango in Halifax, and a Bafta Award for her role in the 2003 film The Mother. On stage, Reid has appeared in a number of productions, the most recent being in the Chichester production of Fracked! Herprevious work also includes the National Theatre’s production of Happy Now?, the Donmar Warehouse’s Dimetos, and Hedda Gabler at The Old Vic alongside Sheridan Smith.

The season also includes the previously announced production of Lady Windermere’s Fan, directed by actress Kathy Burke.

A Woman of No Importance Tickets are available now.
