The Ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde

sandraThe Ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde will be performed at the Múscailt Arts Festival by Rab Fulton and Sandra Coffey.

Oscar Wilde’s final work is a heart-breaking insight into his time in Reading Prison, where he served two years of hard labour for being homosexual.

Storyteller and performer Rab Fulton delivers a powerful interpretation of the entire poem. Complete with subtle props and appearances by co-performer Sandra Coffey, this show brings to vivid life the harrowing experience of Oscar Wilde’s imprisonment and the hanging of one of his fellow prisoners.

Tickets: 5 euro (can be bought at show or booked in advance from Socs Box at 091 492852 )

Date & Time: Thursday, February 13 at 8pm

Location: Bank of Ireland Theatre, NUI Galway
