About this Event

Join Richard Lynch for a Classic Victorian Evening and share the company of one of the greatest writers in English Literature, Oscar Wilde.

Transport yourself back in time to the Victorian era, and treat yourself to an evening of sparkling humour and wit, tinged with a certain pity and sadness.

Meet the fearsome austere Lady Bracknell in that timeless comedy of manners The Importance of being Earnest, and the innocent Mr Jack Worthing who craves the hand of her only daughter, Gwendolin, in marriage.

The Picture of Dorian Grey depicts a terrifying moral about a man who craves eternal youth.

His gripping account of the condemned man’s final hours before his execution resonate to this very day in his classic poem ‘The Ballad of Reading Gaol.

Interspersed throughout the Show, is a lightly sketched commentary on his life, his Literary success, followed by his tragic downfall, and his subsequent rejection and abandonment.
