Take a peek into the rehearsal room of The Importance of Being Oscar

Immerse yourself in the world of Oscar Wilde like never before!

We have teamed up with Original Theatre to bring Micheál Mac Liammóir’s renowned play, back to the stage from 23 May – 8  June.

Starring Original Theatre’s Artistic Director Alastair Whatley and directed by the fabulous Michael Fentiman, this production promises to whisk you away to the enchanting shadows of Reading Gaol, where Wilde’s wit and wisdom come to life.



The creative team behind the magic includes Madeleine Girling as Set and Costume Designer, Chris Davey as Lighting Designer, and Barnaby Race as Composer and Sound Designer.

This collaboration is a match made in theatre heaven! So mark your calendars and get ready for a Wilde-ly entertaining night that’ll have you laughing, crying, and everything in between. Join us as we celebrate the enduring legacy of Oscar Wilde and the vibrant culture of Reading. It’s going to be a blast!
