Here is an update on the present project-a film of Wilde’s poem Garden of Eros.
The characters are the Lover and Beloved, her lovestruck swain.
The idea is that they will move to a Voice Over.
I first studied screenwriting with The Arvon Foundation, gaining a bursery to do so. It was near a place called Sheepwash in Devon. The course was superb. Centres are all over the United Kingdom. More can be found on https://www.arvon.org/course/.
Venue: Club for Acts and Actors, Bedford Street, Covent Garden, London
Writer/Director: Neil Titley
Production and Publicity: Vanessa Heron
It was the perfect way to spend Bank Holiday.
Thanks to being a member of The Oscar Wilde Society I had the pleasure of attending this sparkling evening of entertainment full of wit and laughter along with my friend Mrs Jenia Greenwood, also an actor.
A vibrant cast provided delightful portraits of those who had known Oscar Wilde during his life.
Mr Darcy Sullivan played the painter James Whistler, Mr Robert Duncan the actor-manager Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree, Mr Bill Bingham Oscar Wilde, Mr Paddy O’Keefe George Bernard Shaw and Mr Titley the waiter as Mr Martin Nichols was ill.
It was lovely meeting members of The Oscar Wilde Society and members of the cast afterwards in the bar upstairs.

Here is the story lost to literature and modern society; the connection between Oscar Wilde and the world famous Swallows and Amazons author Arthur Ransome. It was made in co-operation with Lancaster Royal Grammar School and Lancaster Film Makers’ Co-op in March 2015.
