“Wilde Without the boy” is a dramatisation of “De Profundis”, the bitterly passionate letter Oscar Wilde wrote to his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, from his cell in Reading gaol. Two years previously, Wilde had been imprisoned for gross indecency.

 

“...The gods had given me almost everything....Whatever I touched I made beautiful.....I summed up all systems in a phrase, and all existence in an epigram...”.

Oscar Wilde, De Profundis

Also including "The Ballad of Reading Gaol" - Oscar Wilde’s beautiful poem reflecting on his two years’ of hard labour for ‘acts of gross indecency with other males’, a fellow inmate’s hanging and man’s bestial punishment of man.
