The Trials of Oscar Wilde

The Reading Between the Lines theatre company will be re-enacting the trial of Oscar Wilde in Reading prison for three nights from 29 September.

The playwright, wit and aesthete Oscar Wilde was convicted of gross indecency in 1895 and spent some of his sentence in Reading Prison, an experience he distilled into The Ballad of Reading Gaol after release.

The Trials of Oscar Wilde has been adapted by Beth Flintoff from transcripts of the actual trial held in the Old Bailey.

Tickets and times are available at the Reading Arts website.
