Tea with Oscar Wilde at Kiplin HallSaturday, 4 June, 7pm

Ladies, gentlemen etc!... you are cordially invited to the 1880s wittiest ‘chit-chat’ show where a gay time is guaranteed! You’ll be Wilde about who is on the chaise at Kiplin Hall…

This popular modern chat show, reimagined for the Victorian age, is hosted by the acclaimed wit of the era, Oscar Wilde. Following the now familiar format, guests include a selection of some of the ‘celebrities’ of the day. Packed with gossip, song and humour – and a few surprises – this light-hearted performance invites the audience to experience the wittiest Victorian ‘chit-chat’ show, with plenty of audience interaction! Mark our words, tongues will wag!!

 Join Oscar Wilde at Kiplin Hall as he interviews leading celebrities of the Victorian era, recounts a story or two, and invites his audience to get “Caught in the Act”!

 Don’t Go Into the Cellar! are the British Empire’s top-notch Victorian theatre company bringing us Victorian theatre with bite!

 “This is much more than a show; it is really a theatre experience, being both immersive and interactive.”

“Anything that has me laughing at the wit and raucousness one minute, and then only a few minutes later has me gripping tightly onto my fiance’s hand to will myself not to cry, is going to be a winner with me. There are few shows that are both funny and truly touching in places, and this succeeded very capably.”

Tea with Oscar Wilde at 7.00pm on Saturday 4 June. Tickets for this chat show with a difference are £10.50.
