Simon Callow stars in this theatrical tribute to Oscar Wilde's genius

'De Profundis' is Oscar Wilde’s intense meditation on his past, his love for Lord Alfred Douglas, and his subsequent journey to repentence, written when he was imprisoned in Reading Gaol. Irish playwright and writer Frank McGuinness will adapt this famous poem for the stage as part of Classic Spring's Oscar Wilde season.

It'll be performed by Simon Callow, who's lent his talents to other literary-themed West End solo shows including 'Being Shakespeare' and 'The Mystery of Charles Dickens', and has even written a book on Wilde's works. Mark Rosenblatt directs.
