“Love, Death and Oscar Wilde” A Tribute by B8

This event has expired and is here for your reference.


B8 Theatre Company invites you to a celebration of the life and art of Oscar Wilde on his birthday, October 16. Through his writing, both public and private, actors give voice to his thoughts on literary censorship, the beauty of nature, the pain of isolation, and the capacity for love to conquer suffering. He also offers some poignant observations on this country circa 1882.

In this multi-media tribute, spoken excerpts from such works as “The Happy Prince” and “The Ballad of Reading Gaol,” along with private and public correspondence are illuminated with visual imagery and music evocative of Wilde’s era, all through the magic of Zoom.
