What I liked

The interplay between Wilde and his foils is marvelous. Each of the the three give us a different tonal theme as to how Wilde handles others, and is in turn handled. The exposition is artful, never feeling like information for information’s sake, but rather the necessary path the conversation must follow.

What I didn't like

Another tall patron. I do seem to have poor luck at this venue.

My overall impression

A delightful tale told in three linked vignettes centering on a bedraggled, post-prison Oscar Wilde. Brandie June captures Wilde brilliantly in the text, without the homages feeling forced or heavy-handed. And the players, particularly Mr. Abraham, roll these quips and quotes off effortlessly and organically. A lovely piece and ripe for a bit more life in the future.
