The Trials of Oscar Wilde at Theatre Royal Winchester, April 25-27

Following a sell-out West End run, European Arts Company presents this dramatisation of the libel and criminal trials of Oscar Wilde – written by his grandson Merlin Holland.

February 14, 1895, was the triumphant opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest and the poignant beginning of Wilde’s career as a notable playwright. Less than 100 days later, he found himself a common prisoner sentenced to two years of hard labour.

So what happened during the trials? Was he persecuted or was he the author of his own downfall?

Using the actual words spoken in court, feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius…

Oklahoma! at the Chichester Festival Theatre, July 15-September 7

Handsome cowboy Curly McLain is head over spurs for farm owner Laurey Williams. But lonely ranch-hand Jud Fry has his sights set on her too.

And Laurey’s not the only girl with cowboy problems. 

Annie’s beau Will Parker is back from chasing steers in Kansas City, where he won the fifty dollars her father insists Will must have to marry her.

But this irrepressible farm girl won’t be bought quite so easily.

Luckily for this lovestruck crew of spirited ranchers and bronco busters, wise Aunt Eller is riding ahead of the herd.
