An Afternoon with Oscar Wilde

4 August – 25 August 2024

Sundays 4, 11, 18, 25 August 2024 | 12pm

Join us for a special, limited run of ‘An Afternoon with Oscar Wilde’, an adaptation of Neil Titley’s 'Work is the Curse of the Drinking Classes'. Wonderfully witty and sincere in equal measure, this performance by actor Will Govan will teleport audience goers to 1898 Paris, one year after Wilde’s release from prison. 

UK born actor Will Govan attended the Heatherley School of Fine Art in London, before pursuing a career in publishing & journalism as the co-founder of The Moth magazine. Having performed Shakespeare in his youth, Will has recently returned to his first artistic love and revived the award-winning Moth Productions theatre to take on the role of Oscar Wilde in 'Work is the Curse of the Drinking Classes'.
