Wilde Without the Boy is a dramatisation of De Profundis, the letter Oscar Wilde wrote in 1897 to his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, from his cell in Reading gaol. Two years previously, Wilde had been imprisoned for acts of gross indecency with other males. Painfully brilliant and passionate, Wilde Without the Boy is a glimpse into the bruised, loving soul of one of the greatest geniuses ever to have lived.

Performed by Gerard Logan, (Olivier Nominee & winner of The Stage’s Best Actor at the 2011 Edinburgh Festival) this production also includes a performance of The Ballard of Reading Gaol. Written by Oscar Wilde after his release prison, The Ballad of Reading Gaol is a poem narrating the execution of Charles Thomas Wooldridge, convicted of murdering his wife.
