Great Performances: Feasting With Panthers

Theater in America

Highly imaginative portrayal of the life and work of Oscar Wilde, the unforgettable author of "The Picture of Dorian Gray", "Lady Windermere", and other popular works. The story focuses on Wilde's imprisonment in 1895 and how the experience changed a great wit to a fan of great sorrow. A fascinating extravaganza the authors of this fantasy world have dreamed up, using fragments of Wilde's work and that of his contemporaries, to depict his brutal two-year experience as one of Queen Victoria's prisoners. Richard Kneeland is remarkably resourceful and effective as Wilde the wit, the arrogant gadabout, the cynic, the lover; as well as Wilde the touching prisoner of his own soul. Extraordinary evocation of the essence of a famous author, a man of great complexity and genius.
