A Wilde Night Out
from Tue 16th May to Sat 20th May
A Wilde Night Out (16-20 May 2017)
Enjoy an evening of light-hearted, fast-paced wit from the pen of Oscar Wilde, and new playwright ‘Joe Wilde’. The ECC will perform a one-act version of “A Woman of No Importance” together with the Wilde-inspired comedy, “The Impotence of Being Frank”.
In his satire “A Woman of No Importance” Wilde demonstrates his usual wit as he pokes fun at Victorian high society, exposing scandals and delivering his fine repartee at every opportunity. The cast of characters includes, among others, a wicked man about town, a puritan woman, an idealistic young man and a woman with a secret past. Directed by Conrad Toft.
“The Impotence of Being Frank” is a short farce written as a tribute to Oscar Wilde and Joe Orton, in which a tenacious detective manically – and ultimately successfully – tracks down the perpetrator of a crime that wasn’t committed. Will Frank Mulligatawny be in the soup over the fate of Ernest Potage? Or is it the other way round? It is the first play by a renowned Brussels based biographer and academic, writing under the pseudonym of Joe Wilde. Directed by Hugh Dow.
