Wilde Without the Boy

The Ballad of Reading Gaol

by Oscar Wilde|With Gerard Logan|Directed by Gareth Armstrong
Between 2015 and 2016 Director Gareth Armstrong and award-winning actor Gerard Logan brought two strikingly touching works by Oscar Wilde to the stage. The first, inspired by the celebrated De Profundis, is entitled Wilde Without the Boy. The second, The Ballad of Reading Gaol, is Wilde’s long letter-poem, a reflection on his time in prison, following his conviction for «gross indecency». He was sentenced to two years’ hard labour and suffered deeply at witnessing the execution of a cellmate.

Tra il 2015 e il 2016 il regista Gareth Armstrong e il premiato attore Gerard Logan, hanno portato in scena due opere di Oscar Wilde straordinariamente toccanti. La prima dal titolo Wilde Without the Boy che si ispira al celebre De Profundis. La seconda invece è omonima al lungo componimento poetico: The Ballad of Reading Gaol allude al periodo di detenzione trascorso da Wilde nel carcere di Reading dopo la condanna per “reati contro la pubblica decenza” che gli costò due anni di lavori forzati presso il carcere oltre che il trauma subito per aver assistito all’esecuzione del compagno di cella.

Fri. 6th and Sat. 7th of May, 8pm

Rose Reilly, Footballer


by Lorna Martin|With Cristina Strachan|Directed by Maureen Carr
The play tells the incredible true story of a teenager from Ayrshire, Scotland, who refused to play by society’s sexist rules, and who overcame numerous obstacles, including a lifetime ban in her home country. Instead she became a professional footballer in Italy where she won eight league titles, four Italian Cups and was twice crowned a “golden boot” winner. Rose felt particularly honoured to be able play in Milan, where at just eighteen she signed up with the women’s team of the Milan football club.

Racconta l’incredibile storia vera di un’adolescente dell’Ayrshire, in Scozia, che ha rifiutato di giocare secondo le regole sessiste della società superando numerosi ostacoli, compresa la squalifica a vita dal calcio scozzese. In Italia è riuscita a diventare una calciatrice professionista, vincendo otto scudetti, quattro Coppe Italia e due palloni d’oro. Per lei, è stato un onore giocare in particolare a Milano, dove appena diciottenne Rose entra a far parte della squadra femminile del Milan. L’inizio della sua avventura…

Ophelia, Herb-woman

Written and directed by Maggie Rose|With Australian actor Elena Pellone|featuring Gilberta Crispino
Herb-women in the Elizabethan era were expert healers with herbal knowledge. Joan Field is a herb-woman by day and in the afternoon she disguises herself as John and acts with Shakespeare’s company, the King’s Men. As John, she can break the rules of the age that forbade women to go on stage. Joan\John successfully plays a string of famous Shakespeare women, like Juliet, Viola and Caterina, but it’s with Ophelia that she discovers something they share: like Joan, Ophelia lives close to nature. Joan entertains the audience with the story of her adventurous life.

Le donne delle erbe in epoca elisabettiana erano esperte guaritrici dalle conoscenze erboristiche. Joan Field di giorno è una donna delle erbe e di pomeriggio si traveste da John e recita insieme ai King’s Men, la compagnia di Shakespeare. Nei panni di John, può infrangere le regole di allora che proibivano alle donne di calcare le scene. Interpreta con successo eroine famose come Giulietta, Viola e Caterina, ma è con Ophelia che scopre un lato che le accomuna: anche Ophelia vive vicina alla natura. Joan intrattiene il pubblico con la storia della sua vita avventurosa.
