I’m currently back in rehearsals with Charioteer Theatre creating The Dreaming Prince, a new one-man show by Rebekah King about Oscar Wilde, in which I get to play the famous man myself!
Oscar Wilde has got himself into trouble. He may be studying at Oxford University, but that doesn’t mean he can get away with talking back to his tutors. Grounded in his room till the ringing of the morning bell, Oscar uses his imagination to weave a new story: the tale of the Dreaming Prince.
As Oscar tells his story we discover more about him, his inner thoughts and the man he will become.
“I’ll be a poet, a writer, a dramatist. Somehow or other I’ll be famous, and if not famous, I’ll be notorious.”
Next month the play starts a very short tour of theatres in Italy, with hopefully a larger tour planned for 2019.
