Mrs Oscar Wilde
Time & Location
About The Event
Constance Lloyd is rarely remembered in literary history. A feminist, a writer and a mother, she is rather remembered as the wife of one of the most infamous Victorians – Oscar Wilde.
From her childhood days suffering at the hands of her abusive mother to blossoming into a young woman of society, Constance’s story is intriguing and varied. She had her own income, she brought up her two small children almost single-handedly and was one of the most well-known faces and names among the celebrities of London in the late 1800s.
Mrs. Oscar Wilde is a presentation of her life, told using excerpts of accounts in her own hand in letters to those she knew and loved, revealing a wit that rivalled Oscar’s himself, a sense of humour dry and winning and a sense of self that will have every audience member rooting for the tragic heroine from beginning to end.
This one woman show features award-winning actress and writer Lexi Wolfe, whom also received the nomination for Best Female Actor at the Buxton Fringe 2016 for Mrs. Oscar Wilde. Mrs. Oscar Wilde is touring and appearing in Fringe Festivals in 2017.
