Oscar Wilde story will play out at Grantham Guildhall

The Trials of Oscar Wilde is on at Guildhall Arts Centre on Thursday, May 30.

Following a sell-out west End run, European Arts Company presents this brilliant dramatisation of the libel and criminal trials of Oscar Wilde.

February 14, 1895, was the triumphant opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest and the zenith of Wilde’s career.

Less than 100 days later, he found himself sentenced to two years' hard labour.

So what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say?

Was he persecuted or the author of his own downfall?
