More Lives than One – Oscar Wilde and the Black Douglas (3 stars)

This article is from 2008.

Taking inspiration from Micheál MacLiammóir’s legendary one-man show The Importance of Being Oscar, veteran thesp Leslie Clark takes a less sycophantic view of Wildean times. This is illuminating stuff. Clark commandeers the audience, but (among other things) a five-minute rendition of Salome in the original French language text suggests that Clark’s favourite audience may be himself.

Augustine’s, 510 0022, until 17 Aug, 7.25pm, £8 (£6).
