A site specific extravaganza at Enniskillen Royal Grammar School (formerly known as Portora Royal School), Enniskillen

As part of the A Wilde Weekend  (2nd-5thAugust, 2019)

 

Following its successful debut at the original Wilde Weekend in May 2015, and an award-winning revival in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York in 2016, Oscar, Constance, Speranza (and Bosie) are “at home” again, this time in the characterful and historic surroundings of Portora School, Oscar’s own alma mater. House guests will include Jack, Algy, Gwendolen and Cecily from the Importance of Being Earnest, (not to mention the redoubtable Lady Bracknell), Lord and Lady Windermere, the impetuous Lord Darlington, and the precocious Dorian Gray. Visitors will be conducted throughout the house where a range of short scenes from Wilde’s most popular works will be performed live by actors in each of the principal rooms. Is it life or is it art? Come and decide for yourself as we welcome you to the witty, poignant, complex and contradictory world of Oscar Wilde. Conceived and directed by David Grant.
