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.
