LOCAL ARTS: Barren Rock Productions presents: An Evening with Oscar Wilde
Thursday 7th March, 2019 - 20:00€12 – €15
Join actor Richard Lynch and share the triumph and tragedy of one of the greatest writers of English Literature, Oscar Wilde.
Wilde’s timeless comedy of manners The Importance of Being Earnest made him the toast of London Society. His gripping account of the condemned man’s final days before execution, resonate to this day in his riveting poem The Ballad of Reading Gaol. Interspersed throughout is a lightly sketched commentary on Wilde’s life. From his early childhood, Oxford University, the pinnacle of his literary career, to his tragic downfall, followed by rejection and abandonment, and destitution.
Richard Lynch’s previous one man show, Face the Short Kick Out, was a popular success at Riverbank and elsewhere.
Join Richard for a classic Victorian evening, and immerse yourself in the life and literature of Oscar Wilde, as he says himself:
“I put all my genius into my life; I put only my talent into my works.”
