Join Stage 27 for a deliciously divine performance of Oscar Wilde’s ‘Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime’ (adapted by Constance Cox) at The Old Rep Theatre.
1890’s London. Lord Arthur Savile has it all. Money, status, slightly insane relatives and the love of a beautiful fiancee. Nothing could go wrong, until Arthur’s dreams of a happy life are alarmingly unsettled when a dubious palmist tells him he is destined to commit murder.
Feeling only right that he get the dastardly deed done before his nuptials, he enlists the help of his wily butler Baines and an unhinged European anarchist and together they hatch a series of woefully unsuccessful madcap plots to ‘do the deed’. In true inimitable Wilde-style, chaos, mayhem, and Arthur’s sanity soon reach breaking point, with hilarious consequences….
If you are a lover of Oscar Wilde, then you’ll certainly love Lord Arthur and his Crimes.
