Oscar Wilde Double Bill @ Viking Theatre
The Viking Theatre is delighted to present a summer Double Bill of two of Oscar Wilde’s Greatest Stories in a production that has toured to great acclaim nationally and internationally over the past 15 years, with performances from Cairo to Cincinnati, Bordeaux to Culdaff.
The Remarkable Rocket is a comic and cautionary tale for all ages about a pompous and self-deluded firework, inspired by the egocentric personality of the artist, James McNeil Whistler.
The Happy Prince is perhaps the best-loved and most enduringly popular of all Oscar Wilde’s stories. It is the bittersweet tale of a gregarious swallow who befriends a melancholy statue while en route to Egypt. The bird helps the Prince to alleviate the suffering of his poor citizens and in doing so learns profound truths about the nature of love and suffering.
Michael James Ford is joined on stage by the composer Trevor Knight who gives a live performance of his magical score.
Tickets are €15 and can be booked by calling or texting 087 112 99 70.
