Event description

Description

De Profundis

H.M. Prison, Reading

Dear Bosie, After long and fruitless waiting I have determined to write to you myself, as much for your sake as for mine, as I would not like to think that I had passed through two long years of imprisonment without ever having received a single line from you, or any news or message even, except such as gave me pain.


Oscar Wilde’s letter to Lord Alfred Douglas relates Wilde and Bosie’s relationship and extravagant lifestyle which eventually led to Wilde's conviction and imprisonment for gross indecency.

Read live on stage by Simon Callow, Wilde’s words and wisdom sing from the page of this letter written from his prison cell.
