UK Theatre Explores the Trials of Oscar Wilde

Published: Feb 18, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 18, 2013) — Just as Great Britain considers passing a same-sex marriage act, the University of Kentucky Department of Theatre will present "Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde," a tale of the tribulations of one of England's best known playwrights who was prosecuted for his love life. The production will take the stage at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 21-23, 28 and March 1-2, and 2 p.m., March 3, at the Guignol Theatre.

 

Oscar Wilde led an enlightened existence as one of the most creative literary geniuses in 19th century England. Moises Kaufman’s drama "Gross Indecency" deftly weaves selections of court transcripts and personal documents that paint the story of a man who lived boldly in a time that tried him for the passion that made him unique.

 

Tickets for "Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde" can be purchased for $15 general admission and $10 for students. To reserve tickets, call the ticket office at (859) 257-4929 or visit online at scfatickets.com

 

The UK Department of Theatre at UK College of Fine Arts has played an active role in the performance scene in Central Kentucky for more than 100 years. Students in the program get hands-on training and one-on-one mentorship from a renowned professional theatre faculty. The liberal arts focus of their bachelor's degree program is coupled with ongoing career counseling to ensure a successful transition from campus to professional life.
