Redditch Editorial 5th Apr, 2017   0

SOMETHING Wilde is happening in the Room Upstairs in April and those seeking something a little different are invited to witness an award winning performer bring his show to Redditch.

Directed and dramatised by the award-winning Gareth Armstrong, ‘Wilde Without the Boy’ is a dramatisation of ‘De Profundis’, the letter Oscar Wilde wrote from his prison cell in Reading gaol to his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, after Wilde had been imprisoned for acts of gross indecency with other men.

Performed by Olivier Nominee and Edinburgh Festival winner, Gerard Logan, the play offers a glimpse into the humbled, bruised, loving soul of one of the greatest writers ever to have lived.

Written by Oscar Wilde after his release prison, The Ballad of Reading Gaol is a poem narrating the execution of Charles Thomas Wooldridge, convicted of murdering his wife.

Tickets to the show on at the Room Upstairs in the Palace Theatre on Monday, April 24 cost £11 inclusive of booking fee.
