THE TRIALS OF OSCAR WILDE
Playing at The Theatre
Wed 22nd May
14th February 1895 was the triumphant opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest
Less than 100 days later, Oscar Wilde found himself a common prisoner sentenced to hard labour. So what happened during the intervening trials?
Using the actual words spoken in court, this West-End hit production evokes what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius - as this less than ideal husband is suddenly reduced to a man of no importance.
