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.
