"The Dreaming Prince" Revived for Teatro dell'Olmo's Winter/Spring Season 2019-2020
Updated: Oct 21, 2019
In 2017 I was commissioned by Charioteer Theatre to write a play about Oscar Wilde. "The Dreaming Prince" focussed on the early years of Wilde's writing career and premiered in the Arena del Sole, Bologna in early 2018. It has since toured Italy at Teatro Comunale, Casalmaggiore; Teatro Del filodrammatici, Piacenza; Teatro Giuditta Pasta, Saronno; Teatro Cavallerizza, Reggio Emilia and elsewhere.
Charioteer's interpretation of the script was stylistically ambitious, making use of an onstage sound technician and integrating modern references and technology. Actor and director Philip Kingscott is now reviving elements of the play in a simpler, more traditional period setting under the title "Wilde About Oscar" which will conclude the new Winter/Spring season at the Teatro dell'Olmo.
Good luck to all involved!
