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 rivaled 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.
