A Wilde Fan - Lime Tree Theatre

A Wilde Fan

Presented by Bottom Dog Theatre Company

Written and performed by Myles Breen

From a young age, well-known actor and playwright Myles Breen has been Oscar Wilde’s biggest fan.

In his new solo performance Myles celebrates the poet, playwright and novelist – recounting the affect Wilde has had on his own work, and indeed his life.

Beginning with studying ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ for the Leaving Cert and exploring his many other works, Myles delves into Oscar’s incredible life story – one that has been a constant source of inspiration and obsession.

Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination Certificate is required to attend this event. Wearing of mask/face covering is compulsory once inside the building.

Wilde was an artist whose unique imagination and ideas on life, love and art are as modern today as when they were first written, and whose rapid rise to fame and scandalous down fall is still an example of how a society can turn on those who do not conform; a man of his time, but also of all time.

Reuniting with director Liam O’Brien (Language UnBecoming A Lady / The Bachelor of Kilkish), the award winning Limerick based company presents this their 15th production as part of a 5-week nationwide tour.

Originally funded by their sell out 10th anniversary fundraiser ‘Bottom’s Up’ in 2018, Bottom Dog are delighted to return to Belltable with yet another story they are passionate about, and share with their home town audience who helped make it happen.

Featuring excerpts from Wilde’s writings alongside Breen’s trademark wit and performed with his usual flair, A Wilde Fan is a personal and theatrical take on one of history’s greatest artists, by his biggest fan.
