Sorry, this event has passed

Tic Tac Toe Theatre present a new piece based on the extraordinary man, Oscar Wilde.

It is the 6th of April 1895 and Oscar Wilde waits alone at the Cadogan Hotel. He is awaiting a knock on the door that will bring an arrest warrant with charges of Gross Indecency against him. In this superb one man play Oscar will talk openly about his affair with a young boy of fifteen who's life will never be the same again. The ruination he has bought down on the head of his wife, Constance and their two boys, and of course the one true love of his life, Lord Alfred 'Bosie' Douglas.

Bosie once said to Oscar that when he was not on his pedestal he was boring, in this show Oscar may well stumble from his pedestal but he could never be called boring.

After successful runs in Bristol, Bath, Warminster and Bournemouth Tic Tac Toe come to Tavistock with The Scandalous Love of Oscar Wilde an 'extraordinary performance' that tells 'a fascinating story, reflecting a very different era from our own.'
