Oscar Wilde's Women

10 May
Oscar Wilde's Women

Written by Howard Timms and Playhouse New Drama

In this drama with smiles and laughter, two Cheltenham women cheer up Oscar Wilde, who's dying, exiled and lonely, in Paris. Amelia and Christina, campaigners for women's voting rights, seek Oscar's support. Amelia believes that poems, songs, and marches will secure women's suffrage. But Christina insists on something more dramatic: like plays or even civil disobedience. Oscar's response, at first amusing and bemusing, becomes disruptive until it brings reconciliation about the suffrage movement's future.

Howard's seventh Playhouse New Drama production is devised as a fundraiser for Cheltenham Poetry Festival and the Playhouse.
