INTIMATELY WILDE explores contemporary issues concerning art, equality and sexual politics through the unique lens of England's Victorian age. In the late 19th century, Oscar Wilde, famed poet and playwright, was the central figure in a turbulent love affair with the young and rebellious aristocrat Lord Alfred "Bosie" Douglas, and as a result was thrown into the center of three highly publicized trials during the height of the Victorian era in London.
For the first time since the Los Angeles Premiere in 2009, audiences can explore the passion, wit, struggle and earnestness of one man's journey to demand freedom of expression in the face of an oppressively conservative society. INTIMATELY WILDE offers a hauntingly contemporary voice of experience from an age when the cost of love was very often one's entire life.
Written by Olio Theatre Works Founder/Artistic Director Terra Taylor Knudson, the production is directed by Gigi Fusco Meese. It features Set Design by Timothy P. Thorn. Produced by Olio Theatre Works in association with the 2nd Annual " Peoples Theatrical Collaborative" of the Long Beach Playhouse.
