Style, Not Sincerity

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was so consistently funny in so many different literary genres that it’s easy to overlook his short stories. Hardcover Theater presents new adaptations of three of the best:

  • “Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime,” a comic tale of murder
  • “The Devoted Friend,” a tongue-in-cheek fairy tale
  • “The Canterville Ghost,” which must be the funniest ghost story ever written

In this hour-long jazzed-up Reader’s Theater show, four performers play multiple roles and utter dozens of Wildean witticisms. Come and laugh to the tune of beautifully crafted sentences!
