WIN tickets to see Simon Callow in De Profundis at the Vaudeville Theatre as part of The Oscar Wilde Season
From 3 to 6 January 2018
H.M. Prison, Reading
Dear Bosie, After long and fruitless waiting I have determined to write to you myself, as much for your sake as for mine, as I would not like to think that I had passed through two long years of imprisonment without ever having received a single line from you, or any news or message even, except such as gave me pain.
Wilde’s letter to Lord Alfred Douglas relates Wilde and Bosie’s relationship and extravagant lifestyle which eventually led to Wilde’s conviction and imprisonment for gross indecency, his words and wisdom sing from the page of this letter written from his prison cell.
Performed on stage by Simon Callow, whose many one-man shows include The Mystery of Charles Dickens, Being Shakespeare and, most recently, The Man Jesus. Simon has also written many biographies, including Oscar Wilde.
De Profundis is adapted for the stage by award-winning Frank McGuinness (The Factory Girls, Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me), acclaimed Irish playwright, poet and translator and directed by Mark Rosenblatt (Bread and Butter, Henry VIII).
De Profundis will be playing at the Vaudeville Theatre on the Strand from 3 to 6 January 2018. To book your tickets from just £10, call 0330 333 4814 or click here
