The Trials Of Oscar Wilde

The Trials Of Oscar Wilde

Following a sell-out west End run, European Arts Company comes to Stantonbury Theatre with 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 careerLess than 100 days later, he found himself a common prisoner sentenced to two years hard labour. So what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say? Was he persecuted or the author of his own downfall? Using the original words spoken in court, we can feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius - as this less than ideal husband was suddenly reduced to a man of no importance.
