The Trials of Oscar Wilde
Following a sell-out West End run, European Arts Company present this brilliant dramatisation of the libel and criminal trials of Oscar Wilde, written by his grandson Merlin Holland.
Thursday 14 February 1895 was the triumphant opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest and the zenith of Wilde's career. 100 days later, he found himself a common prisoner serving two years hard labour.
Presenting the actual words spoken in court, experience 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.
“Please don’t miss The Trials of Oscar Wilde - utterly compelling and heart-rending. Brilliant ensemble acting. GO!!!” STEPHEN FRY
“A beguiling Wilde in a smart play that reveals the establishment at its worst” THE GUARDIAN
