Olivier Award winning Simon Callow performs Oscar Wilde’s searing meditation on his life, in the form of a devastating letter of reproach to his lover Lord Alfred Douglas - ‘Bosie’. Imprisoned in Reading Gaol and forbidden from writing works of fiction, Wilde was permitted to write – though not to send – the bitter and terrible diatribe that is also a love letter which was eventually published as De Profundis. Adapted by Tony Award winner, Frank McGuinness, and directed by Mark Rosenblatt. ‘An illuminating, affecting evening’ **** (Telegraph). **** (Times). **** (
